History[edit]

New York City Transit bus #6323 pulls into 34th Street on the S89 line

The station opened on April 22, 2000.

Since September 2007, the S89 bus route of the Metropolitan Transit Authority of the New York City metro area provides a link from 34th Street Station to Staten Island, NY. A 397 space park and ride lot has also been built at the station.[1]

In 2005, eight PCC streetcars from the Newark City Subway were given to the Bayonne to be rehabilitated and operated along a proposed 2.5-mile (4.0 km) loop to connect the station to MOTBY, the former naval base being redeveloped as cruise port, residential and recreation area. As of 2015, plans call for a pedestrian bridge over Route 440 connecting the station to the new developments.[2] In 2017, the North Jersey Transportation Planning Authority allocated funds for the study of bridge plans for which the City of Bayonnne has $4 million to build.[3]
