Starting Monday, June 6 Warren County residents will have a new shuttle service.
The new service provides Warren County residents with transportation from Oxford to the Clinton Park and Ride near Interstate 78. The service is designed to alleviate traffic along the Route 31 corridor and the hassle of finding a parking space.
Residents will have the ability to park their cars at three designated park and ride facilities: Oxford Municipal Building,
Washington Township Municipal Building and the Family Dollar Store
In addition, regular service will be available to the Hawk Pointe Plaza/ShopRite and on demand service will be available to Abilities of Northwest Jersey and the Glen Gardner Post Office.
There is a suggested fare of $2.00 per one way trip.
Schedule and service information is available online at www.31ride.com.
