NJ TRANSIT is making it easier to enjoy all that American Dream has to offer daily by resuming weekday express bus service from Midtown Manhattan to the entertainment/retail center.

Transit officials said two-weekday departures from the Port Authority Bus Terminal (PABT) provide a direct one-seat ride to American Dream, with two return trips in the evenings. 

“This is a great example of how transportation can help drive the economy,” said New Jersey Department of Transportation Commissioner and NJ TRANSIT Board Chair Diane Gutierrez-Scaccetti.

“Additional weekday transit service to American Dream is a win for our customers and our environment.”

“Expanding our express New York bus service to the weekdays makes getting to and from American Dream more convenient for shoppers and workers,” said NJ TRANSIT President & CEO Kevin S. Corbett.

  “As ridership continues to recover throughout the transit system, we’re pleased to offer additional service to one of the premiere shopping, dining and entertainment venues in North America.”  

"Awareness and excitement for American Dream are on the rise in New York City," said Don Ghermezian, CEO of American Dream.

This past spring break, we saw a massive increase in guests coming from the city to spend the day exploring our world-class attractions and browsing our phenomenal retail offering.

With more and more tourism returning to New York coupled with the enthusiasm of the city residents, we fully expect packed buses from Port Authority to American Dream daily!

We thank NJ TRANSIT for expanding this service so we can accommodate these guests."
