NJ TRANSIT customers can save up to $51 by purchasing round-trip bus transportation and park admission together.  Prices and total savings vary based on point of origin and admission package.


Service on the No. 308 will begin on Thursday, April 5 and will operate on all days when the park is open to the general public, with daily service starting Wednesday, May 23.  Service on the No. 318 will begin on Saturday, April 7 and will operate on weekends, with additional Friday service starting on June 29.
