“Service changes have been made to address new demand and rider requests,” said Christine Hammerstone, Hunterdon County Human Services Administrator.

New printed schedules will be available in information racks maintained by HART TMA, Hunterdon’s non-profit transportation management association, at more than 300 locations throughout Hunterdon County.  Copies of the schedules will also be available on all LINK buses, according to the Hunterdon DHS.

Riders impacted by these schedule changes may call Central Dispatch at 800-842-0531 to discuss travel needs.

The Hunterdon County LINK Transportation System is a service of Hunterdon County government. LINK operates two types of bus service within Hunterdon County — “demand response,” which requires riders to call by 12 noon on the day before a ride is needed, and “deviated fixed route,” which operates along designated routes, with pick-up/drops off at published bus stops and timepoints. These fixed routes may “deviate” up to ¼ mile off of the designated route to accommodate riders, says Hunterdon DHS. LINK service is available to all Hunterdon County residents.
