Bloomfield residents 60 years and older and/or anyone with disabilities can schedule this free transportation service.  Our drivers will pick up eligible residents in front of their dwelling and drive them anywhere in Essex County.  Rides are primarily for medical purposes but if the schedule allows we can set up rides to the beauty parlor/barbershop, library and even visits to grave sites. Approximately 75 people a week have been taking advantage of the this service.

   The Bloomfield Recreation Department currently has four Dial-A-Ride vehicles in its fleet, two of which include a fully ADA compliant wheelchair lift for our non-ambulatory population. On any given work day we have two to three vehicles assisting our residents!

     Normal hours of operation are Monday through Friday, 8:30AM to 2:00PM excluding municipal holidays.  The service is free of charge. To make a Dial-A-Ride appointment, please call the transportation number (973) 566-7194, at least one month in advance, during normal operating hours.


Bloomfield Senior Citizen Bus

    Our senior citizen bus runs from 9:00AM to 4:00PM Monday through Friday excluding municipal holidays.  The bus drives on a fixed route throughout the town in an attempt to provide senior citizens the opportunity to go to various shopping locations such as Brookdale Shoprite, CVS , Stop and Shop, Jack's Super Foodtown and the Bloomfield Center.  For information pertaining to the actual route or if the bus is running on a regular schedule please call the Bloomfield Recreation Department Transportation Line during normal business hours, (973) 566-7194.


Shuttle Bus

    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 major holidays), on a fixed route.  There are several runs in the morning beginning at 5:00AM to 9:00AM and several in the evening starting at 5:00PM to 8:30PM.

    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 $25.00. This new pass system will allow riders to use their pass anytime throughout the year; they are no longer limited to a monthly pass.  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 or purchase one on line through our on line registration site (please call the office for assistance).
