Shuttle to Shore — EZ Ride Jitney is back!
The Shore EZ Ride Jitney to get to the beaches in Asbury Park and Long Branch is now up and running. All you need to do is go to the train station in either Asbury Park or Long Branch to pick up the shuttle. Hop aboard and we'll do the rest. The Asbury Park service runs Saturday and Sunday service only with Friday service beginning on June 28.
The Long Branch service began in May, but has reduced service on Fridays until June 21 when the schedule will pick-up. Once you board the shuttle, we will take you to the beach or the shops – your choice. Transit riders ride for free. All others pay a nominal fee of $1 per ride.
The service schedule runs Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, Memorial Day, Independence Day and Labor Day from 9 a.m. through to 11 p.m. Two mini-buses serve the Long Branch station with one mini-bus serving the Asbury Park station. All vehicles are wheelchair accessible. The Shuttles stops along the route are clearly marked with EZ Ride signs. The shuttle schedules coordinate with rail timetables to make for an easy commute.
The program is largely paid for by a federal grant with the municipalities of Asbury Park and Long Branch contributing 25% of the operating cost of the program.
