As part of our mission to serve this country’s incredible commuters who work so hard every day, we’re excited to share that we recently expanded to two new cities – Montvale and Woodcliff Lake, NJ. 

This is part of our goal of rolling out Hip across the country. We’ve started successfully in New Jersey, and if current growth is anything to go by, we’re set for a tremendous year ahead.

Hello Montvale and Woodcliff Lake!

Launching in a new city is always exciting, but the reception we got in Montvale and Woodcliff Lake was beyond our expectations. Commuters were loving everything about Hip, from the comfortable bus to the pre-booked seats, and especially how everything can be tracked through the app.

The cameras were rolling as our first commuters rode with Hip, and feedback from the buses, as well as on social media, has been phenomenal.

Generally, when deciding on a new city to launch in, we look for locations that have a lot of daily commuters but lack effective commuting solutions. And this was exactly the case in these two new towns – a staggering number of commuters, with few and poor current commuting options to choose from. 

Daily rides in Montvale and Woodcliff Lake have already started, with the following stops: 

  • 20 Railroad Ave, Montvale
  • VFW parking lot, Woodcliff Lake
  • Borough Hall parking lot, Woodcliff Lake
  • Pascack Rd & Woodcliff Ave, Woodcliff Lake
  • Final stop: 39th & 9th NYC  

The towns join other Hip-serviced locations in Demarest, Cresskill, Tenafly, Englewood, and Teaneck. 

Mayoral Approval

What made our launches even more exciting was the support we received from the mayors of Montvale and Woodcliff Lake. 

Mayor Mike Ghassali from Montvale and Mayor Carlos Rendo from Woodcliff Lake were on board (no pun intended) from the very beginning and were instrumental in our successful launch. 

Mayor Ghassali noted: “Mayor Carlos Rendo and myself are happy to introduce a revolutionary service like this to our residents. We are confident Hip will be the solution they have been searching for and hope to reduce the stress involved in daily commuting”.

We couldn’t agree more. Hip is all about turning what can be the most stressful part of your day, into an experience that’s predictable, relaxing, and one that lets you get to work or home recharged.
