Residents of Kearny and Harrison, along with other municipalities outside of Hudson County serviced by DeCamp Bus Lines, will have to find another way to get to and from New York City beginning on April 7. The bus company has announced it is ceasing several commuter routes to the city on that date.
In a social media post today, DeCamp stated, “It is with a heavy heart that we announce that DeCamp Bus Lines will be ceasing commuter services to and from New York City, effective Friday, April 7, 2023. As of April 8, 2023, DeCamp Bus Lines will no longer operate services on bus routes 33, 66/66R, 44, 99, 88, 32, and 100. DeCamp Bus Lines will continue operating daily charter, shuttle and casino services.”
DeCamp says the reason for the cancellation of commuter routes in and out of New York City is directly tied to the COVID pandemic, with more and more people deciding to work from home, resulting in a loss of ridership averaging 20-percent compared to pre-pandemic totals.
“We deeply regret any inconvenience this decision may cause, and we hope you can understand the challenging circumstances that led to this decision.”
Any unused or unexpired DeCamp tickets can be returned to DeCamp Bus Lines for a refund.
