As New Jersey Nets fans dwindle, Paramus shuttle in danger

Best Trails

The Record of North Jersey got on the Best Trails shuttle bus to Barclays Center the other day and got off with notes of die-hard New Jersey fans who spent $20 and a lot of time to follow their Nets, Problem is there weren't so many of them and the month-old experiment may not make to the end of the season.

Jeff Roberts reports...

Ten people took the charter Friday, and an average of about 15 fans have ridden the bus to home games since it began in December, according to Brian Bernadin, the company’s transportation department manager.

But the shuttle needs 30 to 40 riders per game to be profitable, leaving the company to evaluate its future.

"We might pull out," Bernadin said. "We’re doing it just for the fans. We’re taking a loss on it. If we see some potential, we’ll take a loss. But if we don’t see potential, we would discontinue it" before season’s end.

Still, for those on the bus, crossing two rivers is worth the effort. One couple, now retired, have been going to games since the team was playing in the Teaneck Armory as the New Jersey Americans. Barbara Conklin says going to the games in Brooklyn is a refreshing change for her and her husband. "We went to every game and were surrounded by those Knicks fans. I love Brooklyn!"
