goHunterdon is providing staff assistance to NJ TRANSIT to survey riders of the Hunterdon County LINK Transportation Service on Route 15, Route 16, and Route 21. The three routes are funded in part by the Federal Transit Administration’s “Job Access Reverse Commute” (JARC) program which was established to address the unique transportation challenges faced by welfare recipients and low-income persons seeking to obtain and maintain employment. The survey is a requirement of federal funding.
On Monday, April 3, 2023 Trans-Bridge Lines began a reservation based system on the Doylestown/Flemington service. Passengers must book their boarding passes for the exact day and time they intend to travel. With a reservation, passengers have confirmed seating for the bus run they have purchased.
“We are excited to take this next step forward for our passengers and our company,” says Jim JeBran, Executive Vice President/Treasurer of Trans-Bridge Lines. “We began offering online ticketing in June 2022, and this next transition to a reservation-based system is a natural progression in ensuring a seamless passenger experience. Reservations will give our riders the peace of mind that they are confirmed for the route they intend to utilize.”
All other schedules (Wall Street, Newark Airport, Wind Creek, and Allentown/Clinton) will continue to be boarded/seated on a first-come, first-served basis until further notice. We cannot confirm seating on these schedules at this time. The advance purchase of tickets is still highly recommended, but the advance purchase of paper or electronic tickets does not reserve or confirm seating.

NJ TRANSIT recently announced the relaunch of its Adopt-A-Station program. Under the program, community groups can “adopt” their local train station to maintain its character as a focal point of their neighborhood by planting flowers, performing light landscaping and maintenance and removing litter.
“The Adopt-A-Station program is a great way for civic groups to take pride in their hometown station as the welcoming point into their towns,” says New Jersey Department of Transportation Commissioner and NJ TRANSIT Board Chair Diane Gutierrez-Scaccetti.
Within a week of goHunterdon sharing the announcement of the program from NJ TRANSIT, all four Hunterdon communities that host NJ TRANSIT rail stations committed to participate in the program and adopt their local station~ Whitehouse Station, Lebanon, Annandale, and High Bridge.
“The response from the host municipalities was immediate,” says Tara Shepherd, goHunterdon Executive Director. “Representatives of Readington Township, Lebanon Borough, Clinton Township, and High Bridge Borough reached out unanimously to express their interest in adopting their station and supporting rail service in their community.” Each community will apply to NJ TRANSIT individually.
“NJ TRANSIT’s rail stations contribute significantly to the charm, beauty, and distinctiveness of the municipalities they reside in throughout our State,” says NJ TRANSIT President & CEO Kevin S. Corbett. “The relaunch of the Adopt-A-Station program is made possible through a generous sponsorship with American Express.”
As part of the adoption agreement, community groups agree to remove litter at least once a year, provide light landscaping, and maintenance. NJ TRANSIT provides safety vests, trash bags, and directional support. Community groups are also encouraged to provide NJ TRANSIT feedback on ideas for improvements at each station.
“We are thrilled, but not surprised, by the response of these communities,” says Shepherd. “goHunterdon is committed to supporting each group in their adoption of these stations.”
