The 82 Hudson is a bus route operated by New Jersey Transit in the U.S. state of New Jersey. Buses run from Exchange Place in Jersey City along Montgomery Street, Marin Boulevard, Newark Avenue, and Summit Avenue to Paterson Plank Road at Transfer Station in Union City.
The 82 operates along a former Public Service Railway streetcar route that extended from Exchange Place to Union City and beyond on Paterson Plank Road to Passaic and various streets to Paterson. The final patterns operated were the 15 Passaic, 29 Hudson, and 35 Secaucus. The 29 and 35 both began at Exchange Place, while the 15 ran from Hoboken Terminal along Paterson Plank Road and Congress Street, joining the others along Summit Avenue at Transfer Station, where interchange was available to the 17 Hudson. Along Paterson Plank Road beyond Union City, the 29 was the first to end, in downtown Secaucus. The 35 also ended in Secaucus; only the 15 continued across the Hackensack River to Paterson. The 15 was replaced by all service vehicles (trolley buses) in 1936 and buses in 1947, and has evolved into the 85 route to Secaucus. The other two trolley lines, the 29 and 35, were replaced with buses by Public Service Coordinated Transport in 1931. NJ Transit assigned the number 82 in 1982, and eventually the route was truncated to its current length.
