Bayonne is a city in New Jersey. It is home to Cape Liberty Cruise Port.

Get in[edit]

By car[edit]

There are only three ways to get in and out of the city by car: the Bayonne Bridge from Staten Island, Route 440, and the New Jersey Turnpike (I-78) from Newark. During rush hour this results in traffic jams when exiting the city via New Jersey Turnpike. The city has its own exit off of the NJ Turnpike - 14A.

By bus[edit]

Bus transportation is provided on three main north-south streets of the city: Broadway, Kennedy Boulevard, and Avenue C, both by the state-operated New Jersey Transit and several private bus lines. The Broadway line runs solely inside Bayonne city limits, while bus lines on Avenue C and Kennedy Boulevard run to various end points in Jersey City. One Kennedy Boulevard service (the Coach USA 99S) runs to the Port Authority Bus Terminal in midtown Manhattan, New York City, and rush hours peak direction the NJ Transit 120 runs between Avenue C in Bayonne and Battery Park in downtown Manhattan.

By train[edit]

The Hudson-Bergen Light Rail, which was completed in the year 2000, has been a popular form of transportation which currently has stops throughout Bayonne, Jersey City, Hoboken, Weehawken, Union City and North Bergen.

Stations in Bayonne are:

  • 45th Street, Avenue E at East 45th Street
  • 34th Street, Avenue E at East 34th Street
  • 22nd Street, Avenue E at East 22nd Street
  • 8th Street, Avenue E at East 8th Street

Ironically, all of these stations were the original train stations for the old Central Jersey rail system.

Service within Bayonne is available between these three stations. Northbound service from Bayonne runs through Jersey City, mostly near the waterfront, to Hoboken Terminal. Other parts of the system can be accessed via transfers. The Tonnelle Avenue (in North Bergen) and other stations north of Hoboken Terminal can also be reached by transferring at stations between Liberty State Park and Pavonia-Newport for the West End Avenue-Tonnelle Avenue route. The Liberty State Park station is a transfer point for those traveling between Bayonne and stations on the West Side Avenue (Jersey City) line. Connection to PATH trains to midtown Manhattan and to New Jersey Transit commuter train service are available at Hoboken Terminal. Transfers to PATH trains to Newark, Harrison, and downtown Manhattan are available at Exchange Place.
