Latest Happenings in the Borough

Route 72 Free Bridge shuttle

 During construction of the Route 72 Manahawkin Bay Bridges Project, the sidewalk and bay bridge that connects the mainland to Bonnet Island will be closed to bicyclists and pedestrians. To accommodate people wishing to go to Bonnet Island, a FREE shuttle bus will run from Marsha Drive with a stop in the Eastbound (EB) direction at 3rd Street on Bonnet Island. The shuttle bus will then return in the Westbound (WB) direction stopping at the Public Access Parking Lot on Bay Avenue on Bonnet Island and Marsha Drive on the mainland. This is a TEMPORARY alternative that will operate seven (7) days a week while the sidewalk and bay bridge is closed. Please refer to the schedule below for times and the map for shuttle bus stop locations. The schedule may be adjusted in the future depending on the number of riders.  Click HEREfor the full schedule.
