Location

A key geographic focal point of the film will be the bus stop at the intersection of Routes 1&9 and Hackensack Avenue in South Kearny, New Jersey.

Diesel-choked, wind-blown and trash-strewn, on an isthmus of land between the Passaic and Hackensack Rivers, the stop features a panoramic view of the New York City skyline, the landmark Truck Stop Diner (once located in Manhattan and owned by Arthur Miller) on one corner, and the Hudson County Correctional Facility on the opposite corner.  There’s a small shelter that is often overcrowded, especially in inclement weather on one side; on the other the shelter was taken out by a wayward tractor-trailer some years ago and never replaced.

We hope The People of the #1 Bus will provide insightful and compassionate windows into the lives of ‘everymen’ and ‘everywomen’. These are the people who move our food, clean our houses, and drive the trucks that bring us our worldly goods. The People of the #1 Bus will unfold over time and through seasons; we will visit our subjects in the blistering heat of August afternoons and during the blizzard-driven snows of January.
