Most of the patrons are using it as a shuttle to/from Broad Street and Newark Penn/Gateway Center. However, there are a lot of Rutgers Business School students, professors and faculty that also utilize the service, and other business employees in the Washington Park area as well. As Newark grows (and if you have not been there recently, it's growing!) the service will become utilized even more. Hopefully they can increase service, especially in the off peak periods. It's useless for going to NJPAC at night, unless you're really dedicated or forced to travel by transit.the real problem for me is that due to the lack of street light priority the low speeds combined with the large headways mean that unless you show up to the station 60 seconds before the train departs, 90% of the line is faster to get to by walking than by waiting for the train.
