Caldwell, New Jersey: There may soon be a new way to commute to the New York area from The Caldwells.
Officials in Caldwell are contemplating the idea of a jitney shuttle service between the Borough and the Bay Street Train Station in Montclair. The shuttle service would operate on weekdays, and would cost $2.50 each way, though a yearly pass could be offered.
"It is our hope to provide this convenient, safe and environmentally-friendly way for our daily commuters to reach their work and home destinations", according to the Borough.
The Bay Street Train Station is served by the Montclair-Boonton Line, which provides direct rail service to Newark Broad Street and New York Penn Station.
Currently, Caldwell residents who commute to New York must either take a DeCamp bus to the Port Authority Bus Terminal in Manhattan or take an NJ Transit bus to a train station in Glen Ridge, Bloomfield, or Newark.
The Borough is asking that those who would be interested in using the service fill out a brief online survey. Click here to learn more, and to take the survey.
