A plan that proposes more frequent NJ Transit bus service on weekdays and weekends and even an Uber-like service to the port, debuted during two virtual public forums Thursday to some praise and some criticism from riders.

The New Bus Newark plan redesigns 38 routes to and from Newark that were used by 180,000 people in 2019. A final plan is expected to be released this fall. An online survey about the changes that the plan proposes is being conducted on the New Bus Newark website until Sept. 9.

The plan would provide a bus every five minutes on weekdays from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m., and every 10 minutes on weekends on three of the busiest “Type 1A” routes, the #1, 25 and 21 buses, which are designated the “backbone” of Newark’s bus routes, NJ Transit officials said.

The redesign would create a “Bus Rapid Transit” like corridor, with dedicated bus lanes and traffic signals that give green light preference to buses, said consultants working on the plan.

Type 1B routes would have service every 7 to 10 minutes on weekdays from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m., and every 15-19 minutes on weekends on the #13, 27, 34 to Prospect Street, the #94 north of the Irvington bus terminal and by some of the #11, 28 and 29 buses serving Bloomfield Avenue.

Type 2 bus routes, representing 25% of service area in the redesign, will operate every 12-15 minutes on weekdays and 15-30 minutes on weekends. Type 3 routes would have the least frequent service, operating every 30-60 minutes or more on weekdays and weekends.

The plan would create an on-demand NJ Transit micro transit system to serve Port Newark that acts like Uber or Lyft. Passengers would use the NJ Transit app or call for service by phone. That takes over from the southern portion of the #40 bus which will no longer serve the port, but will continue to serve Jersey Gardens mall.

For commuters, the devil was in the details of what happens to some of the routes, which are available on the New Bus Newark website.

In the case of the busy, but very circuitous #1 route, it would be split into a new #1 route that stays in Newark. Parts of the current #1 route that now serves Kearny and Jersey City would be spun off. That new route #3 would run between Newark, Kearny and Exchange Place in Jersey City. The new #4 would serve Newark, Kearny and Journal Square in Jersey City.

The #1 would operate between Ivy Hill Loop and Chapel/Fleming every 5 minutes under the plan. A new East Ferry (Street) shuttle #9 will provide service east of Penn Station on Wilson Ave. to the Doremus Ave. Correction Center.

The redesigned #25 route will provide service every 5 minutes on the Springfield Ave. corridor between Chancellor Avenue and Newark Penn Station. Passengers riding west of Chancellor Avenue will be served by #70 and the new #776 shuttle operating in Maplewood, Springfield, and Millburn.

A new #8 shuttle serving Newark’s Ironbound section would be created to replace portions of other bus routes that served that neighborhood. Other new shuttle bus routes are proposed to do the same in other areas.

The plan entirely discontinues some routes, including the Go Bus #25, the #65 between Newark and Somerville and the #66 between Newark and Mountainside, due to low ridership or poor performance.

“The redesign is to better align with customer needs,” said R.J. Palladino, NJ Transit senior program manager. “We heard our riders want more frequent service.”

To do that, some bus stops may be eliminated, especially where every city block has a bus stop. However, officials pledged that would not strand riders and said 99% of bus customers would be less than a quarter mile walk from a bus that runs every 5 minutes.

Some riders who commented at 6 p.m. hearing Thursday said the changes will mean more transfers between buses for them. Many who commented said they don’t have cars and depend on the bus.

“I saw the elimination of the 29 on Elizabeth Avenue, that means I have to take the 27 and transfer at Broad and Market Streets. We’ll have to transfer to the 1 and 25 to Penn Station,” said Jason Ortiz, who identified himself as a South Ward resident. “Eliminating them on Elizabeth Avenue means I’ll no longer have direct service.”

Tavainya Smith of Bloomfield said she is totally losing service.

“Why are you cutting service on the 29 to Parsippany? I don’t drive and there is no way for me to get to Parsippany except the 29,” she said.

Others questioned the reasons for some changes.

“The 55, 66, and 73 (routes) are being dropped entirely or shortened to local routes and you’ll need to transfer,” said Ryan Novosielski. “I’ve ridden these routes and they’re not empty. The idea is not great.”

The redesign seems to not focus on people who ride multiple bus routes, he said.

“It’s not tailored to people who use transit for everything they do,” Novosielski said.

George Kaufer asked if NJ Transit plans to increase service on alternate bus routes to the #66 bus that would be discontinued.

“The 117 is a rush hour bus and the 52 runs from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. Any plans to increase 52 service so it is a viable alternative for the 66?” he asked.

Khalil Kettles told officials if bus stops are being eliminated, then more bus shelters are needed, especially on the 22, 107 and 99 routes.

“If you eliminate stops more people will be grouped together. Some are elderly and they need a place to get out of the weather,” he said.

Officials said all the comments will be considered before the final report is released this fall. Palladino said location of bus shelters is done cooperatively with the city or town.

How to Ride a NJ TRANSIT Bus

In urban areas, bus stops are usually marked by bus stop signs. Signs may list the route numbers of the buses stopping at that location. Be sure to check the route and destination of the bus you want to take on both the bus stop sign and on the bus. In rural and suburban areas, where stops may not be marked, you can board a bus anywhere along the route if it is safe for the bus to stop. To hail a bus, simply signal to the driver as the bus approaches. When you board, tell the driver where you are going and deposit the required fare. Most local buses require exact change in coins or $1 bills. The bus driver does not carry money and cannot make change! When you are near your exit stop, alert the bus driver by pressing the signal tape above and between the side windows.

 

How to Read a Bus Timetable?

Choose your direction of travel and look at the section of the schedule for either weekdays (Monday thru Friday) or weekends (Saturdays, Sundays, and holidays). Find the location you are starting from on the timetable. “Time points” listed represent the major stops. Buses also stop at locations along the route that are between the time points.

If you commute daily, you can save up to 35% over the regular one-way fare by purchasing a monthly NJ TRANSIT bus pass. You can use it to make unlimited trips on NJ TRANSIT bus routes for an entire calendar month for the number of zones indicated on the pass. If you travel only a few days a week, a 10-trip ticket is available at 10-25% discount over the regular one-way fare. It is good for ten one-way trips for 20 days from the date of purchase. If your trip requires a transfer to a second bus, purchase a transfer for $.60 ($.25 for seniors/persons with disabilities/children) when you pay your fare on the first bus—you’ll save $.70 cents on the second fare!

Awesome customer service

My heart sank when I accidentally overwrote my account due to one of those annoying tech upgrades on iPhone! I was on a train from NYC to my hometown for Christmas and couldn’t remember my password to any of my app accounts including my personal email 😰. I had about 20 one way tickets saved in my profile history. I found a phone number and spoke with Pam after the holiday. Patiently she troubleshooted the account and was able to reactivate the old account finding my history! Great way to end the year! Thanks Pam! 🙏🏼🌺

New version looks nice but WONKY and nonsensical.

The new version of the app looks nice and modern. But it’s very annoying that my monthly pass pops up instantly when clicking “my tickets” because i actually have other tickets! Also it displays horizontally, which is annoying because I never asked it to rotate. If the ticket wants to display horizontally to distinguish a monthly from a single use, fine, but the functions should still remain at the bottom because I’m not holding my phone sideways, I’m holding it vertically. It’s very frustrating when trying to close the monthly pass to continue using the app or display another ticket.
Also, the new version’s “schedule” feature got rid of displaying if a route has transfers on the results screen. I almost stayed on a train that had a transfer to get to where I was going because you have to CLICK the route to see wether or not you need to transfer to a different line or not. The old version said wether or not a route had transfers or not up front. It’s very misleading because I want to avoid trains with transfers if I can, and people who are new to NJ transit will for sure stay on a train instead of transfer if they don’t click to expand the route info because they’re under the impression there are no transfers if It doesn’t say so up front. Please bring that feature back. Everything else is fine I guess.

Crashes

New version needs some fixing regarding how we log in. Why do we constantly need to put in our password except for when we’re using stored credit cards? And this new version doesn’t work well with saved passwords on the iPhone - I use Touch ID to retrieve my stored password and it deletes my email. In general I love being able to buy my tickets via an app and the new design seems fine. Major issue that persists in this version: I need to open the app when I first get on the train in Penn Station but because of limited connectivity I often have trouble. The app should be able to show active tickets without connectivity. It used to be fine in that regard but a few updates ago it became an issue. Conductors get very frustrated when the app isn't open and running but that is very often not the fault of the riders. (That's another customer service issue - many of the conductors are outwardly hostile about the app - they need to learn to adapt but I believe that would be enabled if the app were set up such that it doesn't make their jobs harder. ) Just this morning I had the app open just fine. Conductor came around 5 mins later and it had kicked me out so he had to come back.
