Hackensack Bus Terminal, also called the Hackensack Bus Transfer,[1] is a regional bus station in downtown Hackensack, New Jersey, owned and operated by New Jersey Transit.[2] The bus station was built in the 1970s and was extensively renovated in 2007. An outdoor central island boarding–disembarking area surrounds an indoor waiting room and ticketing facilities.[2]

Bus service from the terminal and nearby bus stops travels to locations in Bergen, Passaic, Essex and Hudson counties as well as the Port Authority Bus Terminal and George Washington Bridge Bus Station in New York City.[3]

Location and Vicinity[edit]

The bus station is located on River Street one block east of the commercial district on Main Street. Nearby is the New Jersey Naval Museum's USS Ling on the bank of the Hackensack River. Reminders of the original colonial city centered on the First Reformed Dutch Church and the county seat of Bergen County, including the Bergen County Court House, are also in the immediate vicinity. The White Manna, an iconic 1946 diner, and the Bergen Museum of Art & Science are located just north on River Street.

The station is approximately equidistant between two of the three train stations on New Jersey Transit's Pascack Valley Line that serve the city. Transfer to any of them requires a short walk or bus trip. Essex Street Station serves the southern part of the downtown and the Hackensack University Medical Center, while Anderson Street Station serves the northern part including Farleigh Dickenson University. The New Bridge Landing Station is located over the city's northern border near the city line of adjoining River Edge. The proposed Passaic-Bergen Rail Line would terminate to the west at nearby State Street.
