Trans-Bridge Lines Inc. of Bethlehem has announced that it will soon be opening a ticket purchase location to serve its commuters picking up its New York City service in Wescosville.
Starting Friday Trans-Bridge will partner with Top Star Express Exxon to provide seven-day-a-week ticket purchasing.
The Trans-Bridge stop in Wescosville is in the Wescosville Park ‘N Ride, just east of the former Charcoal Drive-In on Hamilton Boulevard.
The Top Star Express is at 4141 Tilghman St. Hours are 5 a.m. to midnight.
Trans-Bridge began offering service to New York’s Port Authority from Wescosville and Hellertown in late July after the Port Authority cancelled its contract with Kutztown-based Bieber Tourways due to non-payment of bills.
Bieber, however, was able to keep a New York City route by finding an alternate city drop-off site. It is now using the southeast corner of 383 Madison Ave. at E. 47th St. as the pick-up and drop-off locations.
Trans-Bridge is using Bieber’s former Gate 19 at the Port Authority bus terminal.
