  1. Haha! I almost fell asleep looking at the photo. The pants equivalent of watching paint dry..

      When are they going to stop making those pants?! When men turn a certain age, they think those pants give them shape. Like I said, nothing worse…

  2. I am considering a move to Bloomfield. I hear there is a Jitney from the train station, but have been unable to find a schedule on line. Can you assist? Thanks

      Hi Vicki,

      You should check out the Bloomfield town site. From what I remember it listed the sked for the jitney. There are 2 buses now–one for the south end and one for the north end. I haven’t rode on the south for for awhile so I’m not sure whether or not they charge for rides (the Glen Ridge jitney currently charges a fee). I’ll see if I can post a direct link for you. Happy house hunting!

      Found this on the site:

      Shuttle Bus

      The Bloomfield Shuttle Bus has been designed to pick up commuters and transport them to the newly renovated Bloomfield Station located on Lackawanna Place. The new Bloomfield Station is a stop on NJ Transit’s Montclair-Boonton Line which enables commuters a direct trip to many destinations such as Hoboken and New York.

      Our shuttles run Monday through Friday (except major holidays), on a fixed route. There are several runs in the morning beginning at 5:00AM to 9:00AM and several in the evening starting at 5:00PM to 9:30PM.

      In an attempt to better meet the needs of Bloomfield’s shuttle bus riders, the recreation department has slightly adjusted the fare schedule for its shuttle bus program. The new pass system will allow riders to purchase a 50 ride pass for $25.00. This new pass system will allow riders to use their pass anytime throughout the year; they are no longer limited to a monthly pass.

      This new pass system will begin on Tuesday, September 7, 2010. After that date you must present your personalized pass to our drivers upon boarding the Bloomfield Shuttle and they will “punch” your ticket accordingly. If your pass is running low, you can come to the Civic Center during normal registration hours to purchase another pass.

      Shuttle Bus Passes go on sale on starting August 2, 2010. A monthly pass can be purchased at the Bloomfield Civic Center, 84 Broad St, Monday through Friday from 8:30AM to 4:30PM or Wednesday nights from 6:00 to 8:30PM. Acceptable forms of payment are cash, check or money order. Checks or money orders can be made payable to “The Bloomfield Recreation Department.”
