The Bloomfield Shuttle Buses resumed their regular morning schedule Tuesday in order to accommodate commuters affected by the suspension of New Jersey Transit's Montclair-Boonton line.
Both the north and south end shuttles will be picking up residents and taking them to the Bloomfield train station and the Grove Street Light Rail Station, upon request. NJ Transit has implemented a free shuttle bus service from the Bloomfield station to the ferry in Weehawken until train lines to New York City are restored.
In the evening, the north and south end shuttles will be at the Bloomfield station only to return commuters back to their regular evening drop-off locations. The Bloomfield shuttles will be returning commuters back home as each NJ Transit shuttle drops off riders as well. There is no set shuttle schedule. Both Bloomfield shuttle bus drivers will be running return trips from 5:15 to 9:30 p.m.
The Bloomfield Recreation Department has waived the ridership fee during the altered schedule. Bloomfield Shuttle Bus passes will not be punched until NJ Transit train are back running on a regular schedule.
