Welcome to Hudson County Transcend!
Our transportation service is designed to help eligible residents receive the mobility they need to work and live in the Hudson County community. Seniors over 60, persons with disabilities over 18, and veterans are all eligible to participate in Transcend’s reliable, dependable transportation service for medical appointments, employment, education, nutrition, shopping and recreation. We provide transport to locations primarily within Hudson County, and with limited service to Essex and Bergen Counties.
Transcend is administered by the Hudson County Department of Roads and Public Property. These services are made possible through the Hudson County Board of Chosen Freeholders, the Hudson County Executive’s office, and grants from New Jersey Transit, the Veteran’s Administration, the Federal Transportation Administration, and under Title III of the Older American’s Act.
Since its inception in 1986, Transcend has expanded to meet the growing needs of its communities. Providing safe and reliable transportation services to Hudson County residents is the goal of the Transcend program. Since May 2008, we have been able to improve and expand our services by adding new vehicles and more drivers, and increase efficiencies with the purchase of a new routing and scheduling software program.
The TRANSCEND System
Transcend does not operate as a private vehicle transport service. The program is a shared ride service where customers are generally transported with others who share the same route. Curb to curb service is provided on a first come first serve basis. Transcend is designed to serve eligible Hudson County residents to ensure they have access to non emergency services they need for their personal well being. Most of the vehicles are wheel chair accessible. Non-emergency transportation is provided for:
