TOMS RIVER – Bus stops have been proposed by state entities along highways in Toms River.

A representative from NJTransit said that there are six bus stops proposed on Route 37. They would be on both the eastbound and westbound sides, at the intersections with Fischer Boulevard, Hooper Avenue and Route 166.

The stops are contingent on whether the town and county agree to them, the spokesperson said.

Additionally, at a recent meeting, the Township Council passed a resolution supporting the State Department of Transportation placing bus stops at the following locations on Route 9:

  • Between Silverton Road and Stevens Road
  • Between Stevens Road and Sunset Avenue
  • Near the intersection of Sunset Avenue
  • Near the intersection with Raymond Avenue
  • Between Bamberry Lane and Froiep Lane

During this meeting, a resident, Pat Klaslo, asked the council if this would make them less likely to widen Route 9.

Councilman Maurice Hill said “As for widening Route 9, it should’ve been done 30 years ago.”
