NJ Transit Adding Service on the 119
over six months of work by RNA and the community with NJ Transit and
the Hudson County legislators, New Jersey Transit has improved
service performance on the 119 line and has now committed to adding three PM peak bus trips starting in early January. We are continuing work to get additional AM peak bus trips and extended late night service to the Heights. We will post the new schedule once it's released.
encourages all bus riders to report any service issues to NJ Transit
(on their website or using their mobile app) and to copy RNA so we can
continue to advocate on your behalf. This step of reporting all service
issues is critical for these efforts to continue to improve serve on the
routes serving the Heights in particular and Jersey City in general.
