Vintage NJ Bus Schedule Blog

Posted by njbus25 on Thu Dec 27 09:39:46 2012

Hi all - I have started a blog where I will primarily be posting old northern new jersey bus schedules. If you have some old ones you would like to share with others, please send a scan to me and I will post them as well. Enjoy.

It is understandable that scans of these bus schedules may have to be done in parts because some schedules are physically large in size. However, Microsoft has a application called "Image Composite Editor" (available at http://research.microsoft.com/en-us/um/redmond/groups/ivm/ice/) which then easily allows multiple scans to be stitched together into a single JPEG image (which can then be opened by Acrobat and saved as a PDF file). Conversion to a single stitched image before posting online might be easier for others to view and understand these timetables.

Thanks for the tip. I'm still working out the kinks, but I will try this for easier viewing.

Wow, very nice. Seems like a lot of people needed that 167 from Jersey City, more than to NYC. I like this site!

Thanks. This was a split route: The 122 ran to Jersey City from Dumont/Bergenfield. The 167 ran pretty much its current route to NY, but was a local via Tonnelle Ave and ran express just at rush hours. Yes, it is interesting that more service ran to Jersey City than to New York back then. I think the 122 to Jersey City was discontinued in the 1970s. I am going to try and rescan that one to make it easier to read.
