Heights, 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 and only operates inbound to Manhattan during morning rush hours (before 9 am), as the drivers on this route do not have a designated terminal to pick up at in New York.  Jitneys run approximately every 10-15 minutes at rush hour. On the portion along Palisade Avenue, it competes with the New Jersey Transit 123. After Palisade Avenue, it runs the same route as the NJ Transit 119.
