Hoboken Hop
New Buses Provide GPS Tracking, Wheelchair Access & AC

The City of Hoboken invites the community to rediscover the revamped Hop shuttle bus system with free rides through the end of October. Beginning Monday, September 15th through Friday, October 31st, riders may use any of the three Hop shuttle bus routes at no charge as often as they wish.

The City recently purchased new shuttle buses to replace the old Hop bus fleet that regularly broke down and needed to be taken out of service for maintenance. All buses now have electronic message boards to indicate the route, wheelchair lifts, and air conditioning. The buses are equipped with GPS and can be tracked in real-time on smartphones through the SmartTraxx application for iOS and Android.

“Whether it’s for taking children to school, commuting, shopping, or just getting around town, we want to provide more convenient transportation options for our community,” said Mayor Dawn Zimmer. “We invite everyone to take advantage of the free service through the end of October and rediscover the Hop.” More >
