“NJ Transit must make sweeping updates to its bus operations or face the continuation of a decade-long decline in riders on its most used mass transit service.
“More customers ride bus than rail; however, bus does not get the attention it deserves,” said Janna Chernetz, deputy director of the Tri-State Transportation Campaign, which released its report titled “A New Ride for New Jersey — Building a Better Bus System” at a press conference Thursday in front of NJ Transit headquarters in Newark.
Roughly 478,000 people board the agency’s buses every day, nearly double the riders on NJ Transit’s rail lines. But that reflects a 7.3% decline in daily bus passengers since 2009, according to the report.”
