NJ Transit announced today that it will discontinue Salem County Transit (SCOT) route 423 effective May 1. The bike rack equipped buses offered 4 weekday round trips over the Delaware Memorial Bridge between Rodney Square and Pennsville/Penns Grove. Though the service was rarely used by bicyclists, its bike rack equipped buses served as the only reliable way to travel over the Delaware River via bicycle between the Cape May Lewes Ferry and the Ben Franklin Bridge in Philadelphia.
The Three Forts Ferry offers four round trips between Delaware City and Fort Mott NJ on select days during the summer months, however we have heard of ferry operators refusing to carry bikes on board. Call (302) 834-7941 ahead of time to confirm that they will carry your bicycle.
