Free shuttle service launched in Hackensack
HACKENSACK – Free shuttles to the train and bus station are available through the Hackensack Transit Connector. The shuttle serve is meant to offer convenient and free service to commuters in the city.
“I think it’s great that the county is offering something that’s quick and easy and obviously affordable, it’s free,” Rochelle Park resident Stephanie Hilaire said. “NJ Transit’s not the most reliable, so once delays start hitting, the 7 o’clock cutoff is, I think, a little early.”
The free shuttle makes five stops. It starts of at 7:15 a.m. in the Essex Street Station parking lot, and then goes to the county complex, Hackensack’s bus terminal, Anderson Street, and Hackensack university medical center. The shuttles run from 7:15 a.m. to 7p.m. on weekdays.
“I think it should go from 6 to 8 maybe, you know, just to cover all the bases,” Hackensack resident Frank Atwood said. “We gotta spend it on improvements. So it sounds like it’s an improvement for commuters.”
A shuttle driver said that the transit connector is still in its early days of operation, and with more signage and pamphlets going around, ridership is hoped to pick up soon.
With the city being fewer than 20 miles away from Manhattan, 30-year resident Frank Atwood said transportation is worth the county’s investment.
