Essex County, New Jersey is committed to meeting the transportation needs of all its residents. Almost 20 years ago, the County documented several major gaps in the transportation network for lower-income workers. One critical need identified was for improved transit access to jobs at Newark Liberty International Airport, especially between the hours of 1:00 and 5:00 a.m. when transit did not typically operate. Not addressing this issue potentially jeopardizes the employment of many people who work at the airport and depend on public transportation. The potential solution proposed was a door-to-door service using smaller vehicles to take people from their homes in Newark and nearby communities to Newark Penn Station where there is all night service on the #62 bus to the airport and the PATH Train to New York City. In 2004, EZ Ride launched the service. Over the last 10-years, the fleet size has doubled from four to eight vehicles and ridership has more than tripled.
