Based on a request from local residents, Mayor Nicholas Sacco and the Board of Commissioners passed a resolution to add a bus stop on the westbound side of Bergen Turnpike at 37th Street.
Previously, some residents on Bergen Turnpike had to walk either up the hilly street or down to the bus stop at the bottom. A review by the NBPD Traffic Division determined that a bus stop was warranted in the middle.
The proposal had to be approved by the state and county before being passed as a resolution by the township on Jan. 11, 2017. New Jersey Transit will create and maintain the new bus stop.
