NJ Transit, Academy Bus, Bayonne and Jersey City team up to maintain Boulevard bus route

Posted by Gold_12TH on Wed Mar 21 21:23:17 2012, in response to Academy taking over #10 bus, posted by tbev on Wed Mar 21 20:16:08 2012.

Bayonne and Jersey City residents reliant on public transportation can breathe a little easier.

There will be no stoppage in service to the #10 bus route on Kennedy Blvd. between Bayonne and Journal Square, thanks to an agreement between Bayonne, Jersey City, NJ Transit and Academy Bus company.

Academy will take over the #10 Kennedy Blvd. route that Coach USA's Red & Tan Tours is dropping on April 8.

According to a press release from the city of Bayonne, Academy will cover the #10 route from April 8 until November, when NJ Transit can put the route out for bids on permanent bus service.

Mayor Mark Smith of Bayonne had previously demanded that Coach USA continue running the #10 bus until an alternative could be found. Representatives from the company said the April 8 end date would be firm, but the agreement with Academy means bus service on Kennedy Blvd. will continue uninterrupted.

"We are happy to report that an accommodation has been reached that will provide for uninterrupted service for the citizens of both Bayonne and Jersey City," Smith said in the press release. "The Boulevard bus will continue to operate and provide an important transportation link for our communities."
