Sounds like a resurrection of the once-popular shuttle that ran Main Street, Anderson Street, Prospect Ave, and Essex Street. Joseph Campagna and myself headed up that effort so many years ago, starting around 1993, and the proposal was part of the whole plan to revitalize the business community by bringing large-scale residential development to the downtown center.

There were lots of things that went wrong with the original shuttle, including them breaking down too often, making it free instead of charging something nominal, and not implementing the advertising plan as originally proposed. I guess it's time to try again.

Does anyone know, what is the new route ?

The vaguest hint of a route appears in the surprisingly-hard-to-find schedule.

Nice find.  Yes, it looks like a resurrection of the former shuttle route, but I'm betting that it will run up State Street instead of Main Street, because NJ Transit is removing all buses from Main Street, and moving them to State Street, as part of the 2-way conversion project.
