I'm only aware of two.

 

One of them being the Springfield Ave and Bruen Ave #17870 in the downtown direction.

 

The other one being Springfield Ave and William St. #19004 in the Irvington direction.

 

It's going to happen on June 14th from what I saw.

Needs more stops to be eliminated. At least a good stretch from S 18th until Irvine Turner, too many stops on back to back blocks.

There probably is more and I haven't noticed unless it's really just those two. I'll just have to be on the lookout then.

They need to do the same for the 13. There’s a stop almost every block where I use the line.

On another note, the service increase on the 107 is definitely welcomed.

There are more two as I rode the 25 on Friday and spotted many notices about stops being eliminated.

NJT might as well make the go25 (pun intended) a route, akin to the go28. Have it run just like its counterpart, 23 hours a day and see how much that can alleviate bus bunching and crowding, only if you market it efficiently

The 114 change is needed

The 114 is way too long for its own good. Something in general needs to be with bus service in the Raritan Valley and Union County. The 114 does too much, and the 113 doesn't carry a lot (outside of rush hours).

What kind of solution or suggestion you have in mind?

 

As for the change for the #1 to/from Exchange Place, is this another way to make up for the #4 getting axed?

Well, it would be something along the lines of shortening the 114. I thought about terminating the 114 in Plainfield while extending the 113 out to Bridgewater (rerouted via the 114 west of Plainfield), and then expanding the service hours of the 65 to provide midday, reverse peak, and Saturday service (extending out to Bridgewater). There would still be rush hour service originating/terminating in Dunellen.

Nothing should even be terminating in Dunellen; not the #59, not the #113, and not most of those #114x trips either....

Running the #113 to Bridgewater because the #113 doesn't carry enough isn't really solving much.... The #113 has nothing to do with anything here....

Folks tend to forget about (or are ignorant of) this route, but the #117 was created to address issues with the #114... That's where the focus should be, instead of the #113.... The #114 from PABT to Bridgewater Commons does too much, but those #114x's that terminate in Dunellen don't do enough.... The #117 is, and has been in serious need of a span expansion for quite some time now (and the way I see it, a route readjustment on top of it..... I say that b/c for the most part, patronage on that route consists of a bunch of people park & riding in shopping plaza's along rte #22, or otherwise getting dropped off along rte. 22 to catch it, because most 114x trips don't go far enough)....

You have the right idea with where a route swap should occur though..... Just the wrong route.

The new #1 that serve pacific now always late now....They should have kept the 1 the way it is and have the 81 serve that....That would have been a better way for making up the 4 being axed
