Services for the 605 and 606 bus are provided by New Jersey Transit. The full schedules are available as pdfs for the 605 bus and the 606 bus.

The 605 bus stops both in front of the Dinky, on Witherspoon near the Public Library, and across from Palmer Square. If you're not sure you're at the right stop, ask the driver before you get on the bus.
