The Passaic Bus Terminal, also referred to as Main Avenue Terminal, is a local and regional bus terminal operated by New Jersey Transit (NJT) located on Main Avenue in Passaic, New Jersey in the city's downtown area.[1][2]

#758 in Downtown Passaic

Facilities and service[edit]

Unlike its counterpart in Paterson, there are no actual terminal facilities at Passaic Bus Terminal. Instead, there is one turnoff lane on Main Avenue that must be used by all buses entering and departing from the station.[2]

Not bus routes that serve the terminal use it a termination/origination point.[2] Community Coach, under contract with NJT operates several routes in Passaic and adjacent Bergen County which run Monday through Saturday service.
