New n40/41 Headway Management Schedule.
As of June 24th, NICE has completely re engineered and increased service on one of our most heavily used routes, the n40/41. Our new schedule now includes overnight service, enabling the n40/41 to run 24 hours a day, along with the n4 and n6. Additionally, we have transitioned away from daytime scheduled trips to an evenly spaced, frequency based service, known as Headway Management. The route is supervised by an on the ground team and technology to minimize bus gaps & bunching. The goal is to increase frequency and reliability by spacing bus pickups/drop offs evenly through-out the day.
Our Headway Management frequency on the n 40/41 is as follows:
5:00-9:00 am buses stop every 10 minutes
9:00-2:30 pm buses stop every 15 minutes
2:30-5:30 pm buses stop every 15 minutes
The n40/41 reverts to a set schedule for nights, early mornings and
weekends. For details visit (insert link to n40/41 timetable)
This Headway Management project started in Spring with stop consolidations and simplified routing, which have also contributed to an overall faster trip for passengers. This new n40/41 service will become a model as we move forward to convert other routes to this type of frequency based scheduling.
Our Jones Beach Daily Service starts Saturday June 23rd and runs thru Labor Day, September 3rd. For schedules visit this page.
