NJ TRANSIT will host two in-person informational sessions on the proposed addition of Sunday service on eight bus routes throughout the state.

NJ TRANSIT will conduct public meetings to gather feedback and hear considerations in advance of considering permanent schedule changes.

The first meeting will be held on Tuesday, March 7th, at 5 p.m. at the Trenton Transit Center – 72 South Clinton Avenue, Trenton.

“These informational sessions provide us the opportunity to get critical feedback from our customers as we evaluate service levels.”
