Bloomfield Commuter Shuttle Bus to Resume Service Monday, September 27

Public Notice

BLOOMFIELD, NJ -- Following a 20 month hiatus due to COVID-19, the Bloomfield Commuter Shuttle bus will resume service on Monday, September 27. 

 

Full service will resume on both the North End Shuttle and South End Shuttle, Monday through Friday (except municipal holidays) from approximately 5:30am to 8:30am in the morning and approximately 5pm to 8:30pm in the evenings.  

 

The North End Shuttle has four morning routes traveling from the corners of East and West Passaic Ave. south on Broad St. to the Bloomfield Train Station on Lackawanna Place.

  

The South End Shuttle has six morning routes traveling east on Belleville Ave., South on Willet St. and west on Montgomery St. to the Bloomfield Station. 

 

Both shuttles operate on a fixed route and riders will be picked up at designated times and locations along the route.

 

In the evening, both shuttle busses pick up riders coming off the trains and take them home in reverse order of the morning routes. 

 

During inclement weather or NJ Transit equipment failure a Level #1 or Level #2 service may be implemented.

 

“It is great to see our commuter bus resume service after being forced to cease due to the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Mayor Venezia. “This is an essential service that will help many residents commute to work in an easier, safer and less expensive way.” 

 

Shuttle bus passes must be purchased at the Civic Center located at 84 Broad St. Monday to Friday 8:30am to 4:30pm and Wednesday nights from 6pm to 8:30pm.   Other times can be arranged by calling 973-743-9074 during normal business hours.  

 

A 50 ride pass costs $25 dollars.  Upon entering the shuttle bus, your pass will be “punched.”

 

As a courtesy to allow riders to test the shuttle service and/or purchase passes, there will be no fees until Monday, October 4.

 

Face coverings must be on prior to entering the bus and must be kept on for the duration of your ride. All high touch areas will be disinfected daily.

Riders are also encouraged to download and register for the Blue Swift911 Mobile App.  By registering for the app, you can get up to the second alerts about service and weather related issues.

 

 “In August we conducted a Shuttle Bus Survey and we received valuable feedback from the community about reinstating our shuttle bus service,” said Michael Sceurman, Director of Parks, Recreation & Cultural Affairs. “It was important for us to bring this service back to our residents but we wanted to do so in a safe, effective and efficient manner.”
