About Trans-Bridge Lines, Inc
Founder A.J. Ferraro started in the bus industry in 1917 when he converted a truck into a bus and transported troops to Fort Dix, New Jersey. In 1941, Ferraro founded Trans-Bridge Lines, Inc. and based the company in the Warren County, New Jersey community of Washington, located in Franklin Township. The company emerged when Ferraro, along with his son, John and daughter Camille, took over the New Jersey Interurban Coach Company. The company operated local transit service along the Port Colden, Washington, Broadway, and Phillipsburg, New Jersey corridor to Easton, Pennsylvania, and eventually grew to include Allentown, Pennsylvania. The company also ran a few charters and tour excursions.

Unused Commuter / Multi-Ride tickets must be submitted for a refund prior to expiration.
