NEWARK, NJ – NJ Transit is proposing the discontinuation of Bus Route No. 95 in the Somerset-Union-Essex County corridor.  The No. 95 bus runs between Watchung and Newark along the Route 22 corridor with stops in Westfield, Mountainside, Springfield and Union.

According to their website, NJ Transit is considering the discontinuation of the line due to low ridership and the availability of ample alternative public transportation to facilitate these trips.

“On average, bus Route No. 95 services approximately 179 customers per weekday, which can be represented as 11 passengers per trip,” reads the NJ Transit’s website.  “All affected customers would continue to have alternative bus service available to them should the No. 95 bus service be discontinued.”
