Raritan Rocket Returns!



I’m excited to announce that starting Monday, May 17 Boxcar is bringing back our round-trip Raritan Rocket bus route from Westfield and Cranford to Midtown! This route is near and dear to my heart as a Cranford native. We’ve heard from a number of customers in the area that they are headed back to work soon, and I wanted to make sure we were here to provide you with a convenient, comfortable alternative.

For this route, we’re partnering with Yankee Line, a premier bus provider. I know their ultra-luxury buses, complete with leather seats and extra legroom, will make your Boxcar commute even better.


Morning Schedule:

Westfield Train Station (North side): 6:15 am

Cranford Train Station (North side): 6:25 am

Evening Schedule:

115 W 45th St (between 6th & 7th): 5:10 pm

We’ve also added new stops in Midtown – our route now extends all the way to Madison and 71st. I hope this will help even more riders avoid the subways, in addition to the crowds at Port Authority or Penn Station.


We are capping our capacity at 50% right now, and all riders and drivers must wear masks on board. As always, getting our customers to their destination comfortably, quickly and safely is our primary goal.


If you have any questions about the new route, please let us know!
