Take the Guesswork Out of Travel with New Union County “ConneXions”

The Union County Board of Chosen Freeholders is pleased to introduce ConneXions, a new travel and transit information service available through the Union County website at ucnj.org. ConneXions is a one-stop portal for getting all the travel and transit information available in Union County and the New Jersey-New York metro region, including emergency notifications and weather related alerts.

The direct link to the ConneXions page is www.ucnj.org/connect.

“When you’re planning a daily commute, running errands or taking a trip, ConneXions gives you a quick, convenient way to check out all the options and choose the one that works for you,” said Union County Freeholder Chairman Deborah Scanlon. “ConneXions is a valuable addition to the Union County website.”

The ConneXions page features user-friendly links for travel by car, train, bus, air, and bicycle. Along with all the major systems in New Jersey and New York such as NJ Transit, New York City mass transit systems, Newark Liberty Airport and JFK Airport, ConneXions includes:

Traffic information and camera feeds

Union County construction-related road closures

EZ-Pass information

EZ Ride shuttles serving parts of Union County

Stewart International Airport

Bike routes including the East Coast Greenway

“I’d also like to draw attention to the Union County Paratransit bus service,” said Chairman Scanlon. “Since its inception more than 30 years ago, Paratransit has helped thousands of Union County residents to get out and about, who would otherwise be isolated and shut in due to age, disabilities or economic circumstances. We are very proud of this award winning service.”

The Union County Paratransit service provides affordably priced trips for medical appointments and other beneficial purposes. To find out about your eligibility or to schedule a trip, call the Paratransit Dispatcher, 908-241-8300.
