To board a B&O passenger train in New Jersey, a passenger would shuttle on this bus from Manhattan.

This bus (built by White, and equipped with a non-standard sedan door) was one of a fleet that shuttled B&O passengers to and from Manhattan via the CNJ ferries. At times, the ferries would be fully loaded with a load of B&O buses, with no other vehicles being carried. Once they left the ferry in Manhattan, the buses would then carry passengers to various stations in Manhattan and in Brooklyn. B&O bus service via the CNJ ferries began in the 1920's, and ended in 1958, when the B&O abandoned all service to New York. A unique turntable was used to turn these buses at Jersey City; the buses utilized a wide lane under the Bush trainsheds that originally was used for tracks #2 and #3, for loading/unloading. A truly unique operation while it lasted.
