Bergen Avenue Route[edit]

Prior to A&C Bus Corporation's operation of the Bergen Avenue route, the route was operated by Bergen Avenue IBOA. When Bergen Avenue IBOA was unable to make an insurance payment, it abruptly stopped running its only route on March 12, 2011, the New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) granted emergency operating authority to A&C Bus Corporation. A&C Bus Corporation began operating the route on March 16, 2011 with no changes in bus fares, however it reduced operating hours to 6:30AM–10:00PM (running every half-hour). Since that time, the owners of Bergen Avenue IBOA stated that it intended on selling the rights to operate the route, however the NJDOT stated the company's rights ceased when it abruptly stopped operating with no warning to passengers.[2]

Route 4[edit]

Prior to A&C Bus Corporation's assuming operations Route 4 was run by Red & Tan in Hudson County, which discontinued service on November 6, 2011. A&C Bus began operating the route between Greenville and Newport Centre Mall shortly after. It discontinued service on March 2, 2019, citing low ridership.[3][4] New Jersey Transit route 86 was extended to replace part of the route.[5]
