LYNDHURST, N.J. – On the “wheels” of a federal grant, Bergen Community College students can now travel between the school’s Paramus and Meadowlands locations via shuttle bus. At today’s launch of the free student service, College and county officials such as Bergen’s Vice President of Administrative Services Dr. Ron Milon (center, dark suit) and Bergen County Executive Kathleen Donovan (center, pink suit) cut the ribbon on the community resource. A three-year, $634,836 “Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality Grant” – with a county match of more than $211,000 – will help fund the service that runs every half-hour from 7:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. when classes meet. The shuttles meet ADA requirements.
Bergen Community College (www.bergen.edu) based in Paramus is a public two-year coeducational college, enrolling nearly 17,000 students at locations in Paramus, the Philip J. Ciarco Jr. Learning Center in Hackensack and Bergen Community College at the Meadowlands in Lyndhurst.
