Morris on the Move, a free shuttle bus available to take low-income residents and those receiving public assistance to and from employment sites and employment related activities, has added two additional stops.

The route between Mt. Olive Township and the NJ Transit train stations in Netcong and Dover will now include Love Lane in Netcong and Ledgewood Mall.

A new, larger vehicle, a white mini-bus, enables M.O.M. to accommodate 20 passengers and two wheelchairs.

The shuttle bus service runs between 7 a.m. and 11 a.m. and from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Friday, except major holidays.

M.O.M. makes stops in Mt. Olive at Kings Village, Hensyn Village, Eagle Rock Village, ITC Crossing Mall; in Netcong on Love Lane, Netcong Heights and the Netcong Train Station; at several locations along Route 46; at the Ledgewood Mall; and in Dover at St. Clare’s Hospital and the Dover Train Station.

The bus also connects in Dover with Morris County Metro bus routes #2 and #10 and Lakeland Bus #80.
