Jersey City – Hoboken – New York
This is an infrequent jitney route that only has limited service at rush hour. It starts in Jersey City Heights, goes down the 14th Street Viaduct to Hoboken, and North into the Lincoln Tunnel.
The route starts at Christ Hospital on Palisade Avenue in Jersey City, turning right on Paterson Plank Road and following the 14th Street Viaduct into Hoboken. It then turns left and follows Willow Avenue into the tunnel, discharging passengers near the Port Authority Bus Terminal.
This route does not run frequently. In the morning, service ends just before 9 am, with buses running about every 10-15 minutes. Jitneys run approximately every 10-15 minutes at rush hour.
Inbound towards New York, the buses drop off at 40th and 8th, and 40th and 7th. It is common for passengers to get off at various point along 40th Street, as traffic moves very slowly.
In the evening, two departures leave from 41st Street between 7th and 8th Avenues, about halfway down the block. These buses leave New York at 5:15pm and 5:55 pm. There is no regular evening service after this time.
On the portion along Palisade Avenue, it competes with the New Jersey Transit 123 (a route which has limited morning rush hour service). After Palisade Avenue, it runs the same route as the NJ Transit 119.
Usually, these buses either say “New York” or look the same as Bergenline jitneys (with a Bergenline sign up at the top), but have a supplemental placard on the dashboard that reads “New York.”
The fare to New York is $3, local is $1.50.
