Delaware lending 20 buses to New Jersey

Delaware is lending some buses to New Jersey in the wake of Superstorm Sandy.

"DART is very eager to support New Jersey transit and the recovery efforts. We are providing twenty buses to North Bergen, New Jersey and the buses will be used to help shuttle passengers that normally use some of the commuter rail that's not able to operate right now, as well as some other bus needs," says DART spokeswoman Julie Theyerl.

Theyerl says the buses are used in DART's Resort Transit service, which ended September 16th. They will be on loan to New Jersey Transit to assist with New Jersey Transit's shuttle service to substitute for inoperative rail lines.

The Delaware Authority for Regional Transit, or DART, used 20 employees to caravan the buses to north Jersey.
