MEADOWLINK TO RESUME LATE NIGHT SHUTTLE SERVICE BETWEEN CITY OF ELIZABETH AND NEWARK LIBERTY INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT
Wood-Ridge, May 2013 – As of May 1st, Meadowlink, a non-profit transportation services provider serving six of the most densely populated counties in New Jersey, has resumed the late night shuttle service between the City of Elizabeth and Newark Liberty International Airport. The program is returning primarily due to funding provided by NJ Transit using federal dollars.
The free service will be provided using two shuttle buses and will operate every 30 minutes from 2 am to 5 am, seven days a week, between residents’ homes in Elizabeth and the Airport. The riders will be dropped off and picked up at NJ Transit bus stop located at Terminal B. Riders are required to make reservations by calling 1-866-208-1307 at least 24-hours in advance and service is provided on a first-come first-served basis.
Union County Freeholder and Meadowlink Trustee Angel Estrada said that he was pleased with the resumption of the shuttle service that is used by about 50 residents from the City of Elizabeth to safely access jobs at the Airport.
Meadowlink is a non-profit, public-private partnership that was created to improve access to affordable transportation, reduce traffic congestion and promote economic growth by working with business and government agencies to address the transportation challenges in Northern New Jersey. Under its EZ Ride brand, Meadowlink manages the state’s largest carpool, vanpool and employee shuttle programs as well as senior transportation, special transportation and bike and pedestrian services.
