Jitney Bus Services
In response to AMTRAK repairs being performed at New York Penn Station by NJ Transit from 7/10/17 - 9/1/17, a temporary jitney schedule will be implemented effective 7/10/17 - 9/1/17, and can be found below. For more information, please visit the NJ Transit website.

Temporary Jitney Schedule (Effective 7/10/17 - 9/1/17)

Maplewood Township's Jitney Service has been designed to transport Maplewood commuters to and from Maplewood Train Station. The Jitney Service runs Monday through Friday (except municipal holidays), on a fixed route. There are several runs each morning from 6:00am to 9:00am, as well as in the evening from 5:00pm to 9:00pm.

*In order to ensure ample space for working commuters, only children commuting by train may utilize the jitney service*

On May 22, 2017 there will be minor amendments to the Hilton & Maplecrest Jitney Routes; the changes can be found below:

New stops added to the Hilton Route are as follows:

  • Stop 4: Indiana St. & Lexington Ave
  • Stop 5: Millburn Ave. & Manley Ter.
  • Stop 6: Valley St. & Broadview Ave
  • Stop 7: Valley St. & Sommer Ave

 Stops eliminated from the Hilton, and added to the Maplecrest Route:

  • Rutgers St. & Franklin Ave
  • Prospect St. & Hilton Ave
  • Bowdoin St. & Prospect St.

New stops added to the Maplecrest Route are as follows:

  • Stop 2: Rutgers St. & Franklin Ave.
  • Stop 3: Prospect St. & Hilton Ave.
  • Stop 4: Bowdoin St. & Prospect St.

 Please note none of the existing jitney stops on the Maplecrest Route have been eliminated. The Maplecrest Jitney will continue to stop at Norfolk Ave. & Tuscan Rd., Ivy Terrace & Oakview Ave, and Madison Ave. & Summit Ave, after stop #5. 

If you board the jitney at any of the stops being eliminated from the Hilton Route, continue to wait for the jitney at your usual stop; your new jitney will be the Maplecrest, which will pick you up from your usual location, beginning May 22nd.
