As the weeks of the work program wear on, with generally positive results, NJ Transit is adjusting alternative bus services effective Thursday, August 3.

Inbound morning (only) express bus service from Morristown and Madison rail stations will now be offered, with buses leaving every half hour between 7:00 and 9:00 a.m.  There is no corresponding evening return service; passengers should travel by train from Hoboken, or to Morristown they can use the regular Coach USA #77 route from the Port Authority Bus Terminal.

Bus service from Summit and Maplewood has increased, with morning departures now at  6:45, 7:00, 7:20, 7:40, 8:00, and 8:30 a.m.

However, due to low ridership, the 6:00 bus departure from South Orange, and the 6:00, 9:00, and 10:00 bus departures from Newark Broad St. will no longer be offered.

Riders of the 107X, 108, and 126 bus lines may notice some decrease in bus frequency, as some buses added for the work program have now been reassigned.

NJT rail tickets will be cross-honored on all these services. The NJT announcement of these changes can be viewed here.

Elsewhere in the metropolitan area, the Long Island Rail Road also adjusted alternative services during the Penn Station work program, cutting back bus services to hourly, and eliminating ferry service from Long Island City to Manhattan.
