New Jersey Transit has announced a new bus schedule they say will save the department money while also improving service along the most heavily-travelled lines.
The changes began Saturday, Sept. 1.
The new schedule is forecasted to save approximately $2.5 million in annual operating fees, which will help keep fares stable for the 250 million bus riders, according to NJ Transit.
NJ Transit says they've reinvested more than $1 million to improve bus service to Newark, especially along key corridors between Newark, Newark Airport and Elizabeth, New Jersey.
Four bus routes have been eliminated, including the No. 42, No. 43, No. 75 and No. 93 buses. Other routes have been adjusted.
