UNION COUNTY, NJ -- Just in time for the holiday travel season, the Union County Freeholders remind residents and visitors that the new Union County Transit Map is available free online, and printed copies are free on request.
The map displays all bus and rail routes and connections in the county. It was developed as part of the 2016 Union County Transportation Master Plan in association with the North Jersey Transportation Planning Authority, which provided funds for printing the map.
“The new Union County Transit Map enables commuters and travelers to see all of our regional bus and rail routes at a glance,” said Freeholder Angel G. Estrada, who is the First Vice Chairman of the NJTPA. “We hope that it provides County residents and visitors with a convenient way to explore all of their options for travel during this busy season.”
The double-sided map features train and bus routes along with hospitals, schools, and airports in the area, including Elizabeth-Newark connections. The Union County Transit Map is available as a free download at ucnj.org/transit.
To receive a free copy by mail, send a request to the Union County Public Office of Public Information at firstname.lastname@example.org. Estrada also encouraged residents and visitors to visit Union County’s ConneXions website online at ucnj.org/connect, for quick links to transportation information including bus, rail, car, air, and bike routes.
Another transportation option is the Union County Paratransit System. Paratransit provides low-cost rides to seniors, persons with disabilities and other eligible Union County residents. More information is available online at ucnj.org/departments/human-services.
