SAYREVILLE – A commuter bus service’s routes between Sayreville and New York City will remain operational through June 30.

On March 1, officials in Sayreville announced that Academy Bus, a private transportation company that operates commuter buses between New Jersey and New York City, would continue its service to Sayreville until June 30.

The extension came several months after a Jan. 31 announcement that Academy Bus would discontinue service to Sayreville as of March 1. The agreement to continue the service through June 30 was reached on Feb. 28.

According to information provided by the company, Academy Bus provides weekday commuter bus service from locations in Sayreville to midtown Manhattan and Wall Street.

Locations in Sayreville where bus service is available are the Harbor Club condominiums and Winding Wood apartments for midtown Manhattan and Wall Street, and Park Village and the Sayreville Park and Ride for Wall Street.

The bus service has been provided to the borough for more than 25 years, but in a notice announcing the end of service, company executives said they have continued to see a consistent decline in ridership.

The company’s announcement to end the service in Sayreville was met with objection from residents who voiced their opposition during a Borough Council meeting on Feb. 11.

In response, borough officials re-established a commuter committee to work with Academy Bus. Following negotiations between the two sides, the service to New York City was extended through the end of June.

In a notice provided by Academy Bus, company executives said they intend to continue working with the commuter committee and elected officials in an attempt to potentially maintain the bus service.

“Academy will be working with Sayreville elected officials along with a designated commuter committee in an effort to increase ridership which would allow Academy to continue the service into the future,” the notice reads.
