New Union County Transit Map Available


UNION COUNTY, NJ – Getting around Union County is about to become, thanks to a new map offered by the Union County Freeholders showing train and bus routes and other information. The free map is available in traditional hard copy and by download.

“When all the routes are laid out in one integrated format it is easier to plan trips and take full advantage of Union County’s wealth of mass transit options,” said Freeholder Chairman Bruce Bergen. “Mass transit is one of the cornerstones of a healthy community, helping to reduce congestion and pollution while enabling our economy to grow.”

The maps were developed as part of the 2016 Union County Transportation Master Plan in association with the North Jersey Transportation Planning Authority.

“This map represents another step forward in the Freeholder Board’s efforts to keep our residents, businesses and visitors up to date and informed on transportation resources, and to advocate for continued improvements,” said Freeholder Angel G. Estrada, who serves on the NJTPA Board of Trustees representing Union County.

NJTPA is a regional transportation agency. It provided funding to print hard copies of the map, which was produced through the Bureau of Transportation Planning in the Union County Department of Economic Development with the assistance of NJ Transit.

The new map illustrates all four commuter rail lines and more than 25 bus routes serving Union County, along with route connections to neighboring counties. It also includes mass transit tips, along with information on smart phone apps and other online resources that make trip planning easier. For ease of carry the map folds to the size of a typical smart phone.

The Union County Public Information Van will distribute the maps at the County’s Summer Arts and Family Flix events throughout the summer. To request a copy by mail, send an email to

Staying On Top

Some people are bulldozers. They move mountains, conquer countries, achieve the seemingly impossible. But then when there are no more mountains to climb, they falter. Routines, maintenance and sustainability are not their strong points. They respond to excitement and challenge, not to the uneventful, monotonous daily grind.
