UNION CITY - Drivers of jitney buses that run along Bergenline Avenue in Hudson County say that the inspections conducted by the state were unfair.

Drivers complain that inspections conducted by the state pulled them off the streets for hours unnecessarily and had inconsistent results.

Some jitney drivers believe officials overreached with lengthy inspections. Some reportedly say their phones were taken from them during the process and are asking the Hudson County prosecutor to investigate.

Jitneys are independently operated and cost about the same to ride as NJ Transit, but News 12 New Jersey counted 10 jitneys making stops for every one NJ Transit bus in Union City.
