Jersey City’s new rideshare bus service hit the road this week to reach areas with limited access to public transportation.
Mayor Steve Fulop hopes the partnership with rideshare company Via will help eliminate parking problems and provide more cost-effective transportation to northern and southern neighborhoods of the city.
The rideshare company Via will have 14 vehicles that will now service the neighborhoods where there are no bus routes.
People can hail a ride by using the app,or via phone line for those who do not have access to a smartphone.
Via is offering a special price for the next month of $1 per ride, and the price will increase to $2 per ride after March 21.
