DeCamp Bus Public Forum

Public Forum: DeCamp Bus Line Service to Our Community

Bloomfield 2nd Ward Councilman Nick Joanow will host a follow-up public forum on the topic of DeCamp Bus Lines' service to Bloomfield and surrounding communities on Wednesday, October 22, 2014 from 7:30 pm to 9:00 pm at the Watchung Presbyterian Church.

At the previous meeting on this topic held in April of this year, many people shared the frustrations they have experienced as DeCamp Bus riders, with many also offering constructive suggestions for improving DeCamp's reliability and responsiveness to their customers. Representatives from DeCamp in attendance at that meeting, including Vice President Jonathan DeCamp, talked about some of the challenges they face in providing their service, and were receptive to the comments offered to them by the public.

Attendees at that previous meeting were promised that a follow-up meeting would be held again in six months so that DeCamp's customers could hear updates to the suggestions and comments that were expressed, and to provide an opportunity for an informal dialog regarding progress towards addressing riders' concerns. Councilman Joanow has arranged this meeting to fulfill that promise.

State Senator Ronald Rice as well as Bloomfield Mayor Michael Venezia will be in attendance again, as will representatives from the office of Assemblyman Ralph Caputo (who is unable to attend due to a schedule conflict). Representatives from DeCamp Bus Lines have also been invited to attend to share with the public the progress they have made on addressing riders' concerns.

The Watchung Presbyterian Church is located at 375 Watchung Avenue, Bloomfield at the corner of Watchung Avenue and Broad Street. Parking is located in the rear of the church in the lot shared with the IHOP -use the front (Watchung Avenue) entrance to the church meeting room. The meeting will run until 9:00 pm, so feel free to stop by even if you cannot be there by 7:30 pm.
