New Jersey Transit Bus Service
A pilot program was recently instituted by New Jersey Transit to provide bus transportation to the citizens of Buena Borough, the only municipality in Atlantic County and the vicinity not provided with this service. This is a test program to determine ridership and routes. Buena Borough has received comments, and welcomes them, regarding routes and has forwarded any concerns to New Jersey Transit. The Borough has not formally adopted bus stops, as service may be rerouted or discontinued in the future. Thanks to all for their comments and understanding during this process.
