The Bloomfield Shuttle Bus has been designed to pick up commuters and transport them to the newly renovated Bloomfield Station located on Lackawanna Place. The new Bloomfield Station is a stop on NJ Transit's Montclair-Boonton Line which enables commuters a direct trip to many destinations such as Hoboken and New York.
Our shuttles run Monday through Friday (except municipal holidays), on a fixed route. There are several runs in the morning beginning at 5 a.m. to 9 a.m. and several in the evening starting at 5 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.
50 Ride Pass
In an attempt to better meet the needs of Bloomfield's shuttle bus riders, the recreation department has slightly adjusted the fare schedule for its shuttle bus program. The new pass system will allow riders to purchase a 50 ride pass for $25. This new pass system will allow riders to use their pass anytime throughout the year; they are no longer limited to a monthly pass.
This new pass system will begin on Tuesday, September 7, 2010. After that date you must present your personalized pass to our drivers upon boarding the Bloomfield Shuttle and they will "punch" your ticket accordingly. If your pass is running low, you can come to the Civic Center during normal registration hours to purchase another pass.
Buying a Bus Pass
Shuttle Bus Passes go on sale on starting August 2, 2010. A monthly pass can be purchased at the Bloomfield Civic Center, 84 Broad St, Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. or Wednesday nights from 6 to 8:30 p.m. Acceptable forms of payment are cash, check or money order. Checks or money orders can be made payable to "The Bloomfield Recreation Department."
In case of inclement weather, please call 973-743-7593 for shuttle bus information.
