Sussex County Skylands Ride received a new bus from NJ TRANSIT,
replacing an older vehicle that has been retired. The new bus seats 16,
which went on the road in July, has a larger seating capacity than the
retired vehicle. It will average over 40 one way passenger trips a day,
and allow Skylands Ride to provide more rides during peak hours and
reduce the waiting list for demand response rides. In addition, the new
vehicle has several winter safety features such as heated mirrors that
were not available on the retired bus.

their weekly grocery shopping trip.
