Travel by Bus

Most New Jersey Transit #197 buses stop at our driveway, which is
at the corner of Hamburg Turnpike and Squad Place (a half mile north of Alps Road).
In addition to Wayne, the buses travel through West Milford, Ringwood, Wanaque,
Pompton Lakes and Totowa.

There are many transfer points along the route, including a major transfer at the Willowbrook Mall,
which makes us accessible by bus from additional towns (and from New York).

NOTE:  Some #197 buses do not go past Squad place, so be sure to check the schedule,
which is available online at: http://www.njtransit.com/pdf/bus/T1196.pdf
[To view the schedule you must have the Acrobat Reader program, but it can be downloaded (free)
by clicking here.]

When you get on the bus, tell the driver that you want to get off at Squad Place in Wayne.

If you get off the bus coming from the south, you will be on the same side of the street as our driveway.
If you get off the bus coming from the north, you will have to cross the street.

You will see a Wayne Adult Community Center sign directly under the sign for the Schuyler-Colfax school.

Walk along the road that leads to the Schuyler-Colfax school (it looks like a continuation of Squad Place).
We are in the white and brick building on the left.

You can contact New Jersey Transit by phone, at (800)-772-2222.
