LIVINGSTON, NJ — The Livingston Express Shuttle has officially reduced its monthly price to $50 for the month of October in celebration of its fifth anniversary.
After briefly dropping its ridership numbers over the summer, the township’s round-trip service between the Livingston Mall and the South Orange train station decided to decrease the price as an incentive for Livingston residents to utilize this service.
“It is the most civilized way to commute to the city,” said shuttle manager Alan Karpas. “From the mall to Penn Station, it's less than an hour. Parking is free and secure at the mall.”
According to Karpas, the shuttle’s ridership in September nearly doubled in comparison to August, when there were no Mid-Town Direct trains to Penn Station.
The shuttle hopes that commuters from Livingston and beyond will consider the Livingston Express Shuttle as an option.
“The shuttle does not only service Livingston, it services anyone who wants to use it.”
During the shuttle’s first full year of operation in 2013, it gave 19,404 rides to and from South Orange train station. In 2016, the shuttle supplied 34,296 rides to and from South Orange—almost a 78 percent increase.
