Lakeland Bus Lines is a privately operated charter/commuter bus operation in Dover, NJ. Lakeland operates commuter routes from Morris, Sussex, and Somerset Counties to New York City. Lakeland also operates two line-haul services to Atlantic City, NJ. The second of those lines was operated by Community Coach (A Coach USA Property).
Lakeland Bus began operating buses from Dover, NJ to New York in 1952. Over time, the service was expanded to serve the Somerset Hills, Newton and Sparta. In 1996, NJ Transit began its MidTOWN DIRECT service from Dover & Gladstone to New York (this service was expanded to Montclair in 2002 with the opening of the Montclair Connection). Lakeland filed a lawsuit against NJT for destructive competition. This resulted in Lakeland operating its commuter routes for NJ Transit.
Lakeland petitioned this court for review, arguing that the Board's conclusions are not supported by substantial evidence on the record as a whole.
Lakeland's bargaining position during these negotiations was heavily influenced by the recent institution of a commuter rail service by the State of New Jersey that overlapped some of the routes operated by Lakeland.
Lakeland re- peatedly stated that it needed these concessions because of the revenue losses it had incurred as a result of the new rail service.
