LONG BEACH TOWNSHIP - Officials announced this past week that the Long Beach Island bus shuttle has new hours. The buses will run from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. 

Long Beach Township officials established a curfew at 9 p.m. on June 23 for youths 17 and under.  Juveniles cannot be outside after 9 p.m. and until 5 a.m. unless accompanied by their parent or legal guardian.

Beach Haven recently enacted a 10 p.m. curfew.

By limiting the hours of the shuttle, leaders are hoping the large gatherings of juveniles will decrease for public safety during the Covid-19 pandemic.
