GREAT news for Vernon, and Sussex County. There will be a direct bus route from Vernon Township straight into Manhattan! This will depart from Vernon Valley Plaza (where Acme is,) mornings at 6:45 and leave New York City at 5:15pm. I've been rooting for this several years. The fares are very competitive at $18 per one way ticket. If I'm going to the city on a weekday, typically my speed is driving 45 minutes to the Dover commuter rail train station. This is a STRONG new option. Congressman Josh Gottheimer and Vernon Mayor Shortway have been working together with Coach USA on this for several months. I feel this bus option could be a huge opportunity for Vernon. Between this, and the hopeful development of Legends, Vernon has new exciting potential! Commuting options can definitely have an enormous positive impact on towns. It is imperative that we spread the word on this so the new transportation options remains available to us. If nobody rides on it we'll lose it! We need good news for Vernon, especially after last week's announcement that the town is unable to pay it's sewer bill.
