At Surf Line Bus, health and safety are our #1 priorities right now. We want all riders to feel safe when they are traveling on our buses. Due to COVID-19, social distancing rules/laws, and reduced demand, we will be cancelling all buses for the remainder of the summer. The only way we could operate buses safely right now would be to reduce capacity per bus by at least 50% - and even then, the distancing in close quarters would still not be enough.
Thank you to everyone for understanding. This has been a hard decision for us. We hope everyone is staying safe and healthy.
We fully plan on operating next summer and we hope to see everyone then!

Surf Line Bus
A brand new direct bus service running between New York City and Long Beach Island, NJ. Buses depart every Friday evening from NYC and return every Sunday evening from most parts of LBI.
We take you directly from NYC to LBI and back with no stops along the way. Let's face it - no one wants to be on a bus when they could be at the beach. We aim to minimize the total travel time for everyone so you can get to your destination and relax.
Making it Easy
Reach out to us via email, phone, or text whenever you want. Our online booking system makes it easy so you don't have to worry about waiting on a reply from someone for a reservation. Just checkout and keep your confirmation email handy to show the driver. You can also book trips in advance on the checkout page.
