I'm not so sure about the new 1 schedule. 

 

Seems like the added trips were added for the weekend mornings mostly. And it seems like weekday afternoon rush hasn't been touched which will still be a serious problem with the over crowding conditions from students getting out of school.

And I should know because of all the times I had to wait more than 20 minutes at times because a few 1's in a row would come extremely packed or just not bother stopping at all when it's not as full because the bus stop will have more than 10 people waiting.

The 37 adjustment will help me as my new shift at EWR starts at 5:00am.

For the 13, the 8:03am leaving Valley Fair goes all the way to Clifton Commons instead of ending at the Big Tree garage. Other than that, I haven’t noticed any changes.

As for the 62, all they did was shift one weekday evening trip by a few minutes unless I missed something else.

I could not find any changes on the 62.

 

I rode it yesterday and it was dangerously overcrowded. 7 people were left at the terminal.

They moved the weekday evening 8:50 trip leaving Newark Penn station up to 8:45, and it now goes all the way to Elizabeth instead of terminating at EWR.

Other than that, I didn’t see anything else.

NJT really should be more clear about the changes. I hate this vague bs.

 

Here is where me and my bag had to stand for 25 minutes because the schedule is not adequate

@jass Some more changes I found to the 62 schedule after comparing the April 2019 to the new one:

Weekdays:

The 3:10pm trip leaving Newark Penn Station now travels to Elizabeth instead of terminating at EWR.

Saturdays:

The 10:20am trip leaving Newark Penn Station will bypass Metroplex Rd and IKEA.

The 2:15pm trip leaving Newark Penn Station now travels to Elizabeth instead of terminating at EWR.

The 4:33pm, 5:28pm, and 11:20pm trips leaving Elizabeth have been adjusted to leave at 4:45, 5:40, and 11:30 pm respectively and will bypass IKEA and Metroplex Rd.

The 10:30pm trip out of Newark Penn Station will bypass Metroplex Rd.

The 2:41pm and 10:37pm trips that begin at EWR will now originate from Elizabeth at 2:28pm and 10:25pm respectively.


Sundays:


The 7:10am trip from Elizabeth will now leave at 7:19 and will bypass IKEA and Metroplex Rd.

The 8:05am trip from Elizabeth will now serve IKEA and the 8:36am trip will bypass IKEA and Metroplex Rd.

The 8:30am trip from Newark Penn Station will bypass Metroplex Rd and IKEA.

The 5:03 and 6:54pm trips starting at EWR will now originate from Elizabeth at 4:50pm and 6:42pm respectively.

 

Seems that we missed a lot.

Great finds!

I admit I only looked between Newark and EWR, which is why I missed those changes.

I am of the opinion that they should be 2 different routes.

Fun fact: Today’s 48 and 62 lines used to be one long route until some years ago. I think the 62 works as is. Maybe some restructuring here and there, but that’s about it.
 

The best method to noticing changes within the timetables is to examine an old and new one side by side which is what I did.

The old #62 should have been split....

Although I will say that the #48 Woodbridge Center mall branch isn't used as much as the old #62 from there was.....

Not for nothing, but the demand for the Carteret branch (for both the current #48 & the old #62) is/was greater than the Woodbridge branch anyway....

Is there any logic with how trips between midnight and 5am are shown on the schedule?

On the 190, theyve been moved from the top to the bottom
