Mayor: Additional bus service on Clinton St. begins

City of Hoboken announces:

NJ TRANSIT ADDS ADDITIONAL RUSH HOUR BUS SERVICE

Beginning on Wednesday, April 13, NJ Transit will add five additional trips to the #126 bus line along Clinton Street on weekdays. The additional trips were added to address overcrowding concerns and will depart Clinton Street at Newark Avenue at 8:32am, 8:35am, 8:36am, 8:40am, and 8:42am.

“I thank NJ Transit for being responsive to the needs of our growing community by expanding bus service during peak periods,” said Mayor Dawn Zimmer.

In March, Mayor Zimmer sent NJ Transit a ridership study conducted by the City indicating that in one instance, five consecutive buses between 8:38am and 8:48am skipped the stop at Willow Avenue and 14th Street because they were already at capacity.

The letter to NJ Transit and ridership study are available on the City website:
