How To Ride The Hop

Where the Bus Stops

Buses will stop at any intersection along the route when flagged. Please note that buses will cross the intersection before stopping. Please wait on the far side of the intersection.

Boarding the Bus

As the bus pulls up to the stop, be sure to read the sign on the front and side (“Red Hop”, “Blue Hop”, or “Green Hop”) to check that the bus will take you where you want to go. Stay on the curb until your bus stops and the doors open. All buses are accessible to customers who use wheelchairs.

Fares

The best part about the Hop is that it's FREE!

For Your Safety Please keep your feet, packages and personal belongings out of the aisles. Please do not put your personal belongings on a seat that can be occupied, especially when the bus is crowded.

Getting Off the Bus The bus will stop at any intersection along its route, if requested. To notify the bus driver when you wish to exit the bus, simply pull the stop request cord that runs along the upper part of the windows.

Did you know?

It is legal to hail in Hoboken. 

Contrary to popular belief or common local practice, it is legal to hail a licensed yellow cab (although not limousines) anywhere in Hoboken, not just at the train terminal. There are 65 authorized taxis. Before you enter a cab, make sure you see the circular Hoboken logo and number.

Only one fare per taxi. 

Taxis may accept only one fare – a person or group of persons going to the same location – per ride. With the permission of the first fare, a second fare may join, but no more. The first rider must be taken to his or her destination first. This rule has been laxly enforced and widely violated in the past, but that is no excuse for continued violations, and the Administration will investigate and take action against all reported violations.

The local fare for yellow cabs is $8.00 or $7.00 from the PATH taxi stand, plus additional fees. 

The local fare is $8.00, except it is $7.00 for rides originating from the NJ Transit/PATH station taxi stand, regardless of weather or shortage of drivers. Additional fees are permitted for extra passengers and baggage (see below for details). In the past, it has been common for residents and visitors to be grossly overcharged by taxi drivers during inclement weather or high demand. Please report any violations.

Call if you see a violation. 

Residents who believe there is a violation should immediately contact Monique Campbell at the Division of Taxi & Limousine Licensing by calling 201-725-7885 or emailing taxi@hobokennj.gov and providing the time of the incident, the taxi number (or driver’s license number or vehicle plate number), and a description of what happened. Residents are the City’s eyes and ears, and we can only take action if we know there is a problem.

Complaint Forms

Complaints Enforcement Policy

In addition to active surveillance and enforcement of taxi and limousine regulations on the street, The City of Hoboken Division of Taxis and Limousines carefully monitors and acts on complaints from the community regarding licensed taxis and limousines in accordance with the following policy:

Anonymous Complaints: 

Complaints submitted anonymously are reviewed and added to the individual driver/owner file. The Division always asks the complainant if they would like to prepare an affidavit to allow the Division to broaden actions taken at this level (see next section). Driver/owner are also given an opportunity to submit their recollection of the events. After a review of all materials, the Division typically issues a warning to the driver/owner and tracks the frequency of complaints regarding the individual driver/owner. If multiple complaints are collected on an individual driver/owner (typically three or more), the Division may choose to issue a summons, suspend, or revoke the active license, depending on the severity and/or details of the complaints.

Affidavit Complaints: 

All individuals submitting a complaint are offered the opportunity to complete an affidavit expressing a willingness, if required, to testify in court on the issue. In most cases, court appearance is not likely; however, individuals who choose this option make it more appropriate for the Division to take immediate action on the grounds that the complaint represents a major concern and should be resolved more swiftly than via the anonymous method described above. Driver/owner are also given an opportunity to submit their recollection of the events. After a review of all materials, the Division may choose to immediately issue a summons, suspend, or revoke the active license, depending on the severity and/or details of the complaints.

In all instances, disciplinary actions are conducted in accordance with the authority bestowed upon the Division via the Hoboken City Code.

About “The Hop”

The City of Hoboken is embarking on an effort to bring community shuttle bus service to within two blocks of almost every resident. When local shuttle bus service is available and convenient, we will all think twice before getting in our cars to drive around town. We’re calling this new mini-transit system “The Hop,” (formerly the CrossTown Shuttle) because you can easily “hop on” and “hop off” at any intersection along the route.

About “The Hop” Logo: Graphic design for the city’s cool new Hop logo was provided pro bono by Susan Newman Design, Inc. Thanks Susan for the generous contribution of your time and energy to making the City of Hoboken better!
