With Pathmark supermarket at Lackawanna Plaza soon to close, the Township of Montclair is working with the Essex County Special Transportation System and Senior Care and Activities Center to arrange shuttle buses to transport residents to from the Pathmark to Brookdale ShopRite in Bloomfield. 

The Essex County Special Transportation System is working on a shuttle schedule to pick up senior residents (age 60 and over) and people with disabilities to take them grocery shopping at Brookdale ShopRite and afterwards drop them off at their homes. 

Senior Care and Activities Center is developing a shuttle schedule for the general public (seniors and non-seniors) for roundtrip service from the Lackawanna Plaza Pathmark to Brookdale ShopRite.

In order to accurately meet this transportation demand, we ask residents to register for the services by contacting the Montclair Health Department at 973-509-4970, weekdays between 9:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. 

You will be asked your name, address and phone number and if you are a senior citizen or a person with a disability. You will also be asked to select the travel schedule(s) which best fits your needs, from a list of eleven options. 

Once schedules have been set, you will be notified about when shuttle service will commence. 

The shuttle service is made possible through generous support from the Essex County Special Transportation System and the Senior Care and Activities Center whose assistance will help fill a pressing need in the community. We also thank Brookdale ShopRite for financial assistance and support in welcoming Montclair residents to their supermarket.

For questions, please contact Montclair Health and Human Services Director Sue Portuese at 973-509-4970.
