NJ Transit operates 57 commuter lines in PABT. Every morning, access ramps to PABT are congested and most of buses in the traffic jam are by NJ Transit.

I think NJ Transit could deploy a "trunk-feeder" system to PABT. A new transit center would built in Secaucus (NJ Route 945, near NJ Turnpike). In this place, NJ commuter tri-axle buses would stop and passengers would make a free transfer to high-capacity biarticulated buses in an express line to PABT with a headway of 20 seconds in rush hours. These low-floor biarticulated buses would have a capacity to carry up to 200 passengers each vehicle.

At this mode, NJ Transit could operate only up to 15 lines in the PABT. This would increase greatly the capacity of this terminal and eliminate congestion problems.

For me, American city buses aren't horrible. They are functional and well-built.

A new "Select Bus Service" began over the weekend. Q44 SBS is a major crosstown route connecting Jamaica, Queens and the Bronx Zoo via the Whitestone Bridge.

In my opinion it is absolutely incredible that the M34 and M57 aren't 24 hours buses. Why they aren't ?
