HILLSBOROUGH, NJ - The township and a non-profit transportation advocacy organization are studying the feasibility of express bus service to New York City on weekends.

Residents are being asked to participate in an online survey conducted by RideWise, according to Mayor Frank DelCore, who made the announcement at last week's Committee meeting.

RideWise is an independent non-profit organization that connects people and businesses to safe and sustainable travel options that enhance quality and create a vibrant economy.

“Express weekend bus service to New York would be extremely beneficial to our residents wishing to travel into the city on the weekend,” DelCore said.

Commuters already take advantage of weekday express bus service to New York City in the mornings and return service in the evenings, with free commuter parking at a site in the Promenade Shopping Center, 315 Route 206.

 If there is a favorable response to the survey, a site for the bus service operation will be announced.
