NJBIA participated in a roundtable discussion with NJTRANSIT this week, which included a conversation on commuter resources that are now available to bus, train and PATH riders who are returning to the physical workplace in the weeks ahead.
For PATH commuters, there is the new RidePath app from the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, which provides real-time information, schedules and trip-planning and alerts. The app can be downloaded here from Apple’s App Store or here from Google Play.
NJTRANSIT also has three online resources available with information about ongoing capital projects and recent improvements that have been made to enhance service and reliability on its buses and trains.
One of these improvements is the NewBus Newark plan, a proposed redesign of the 38 local bus routes in the Newark region to make them less confusing and more convenient for riders. The plan calls for shorter, more direct routes with buses that arrive at more regular intervals. Riders can read the plan here and use the online feedback form to submit comments by Sept. 9.

The While You’ve Been Away webpage describes NJTRANSIT’s ongoing work to advance hundreds of capital projects; improve service, reliability and security, and make investments in the future.
