TEANECK, N.J.  — NJ Transit might want to call Bus 7174 The Love Bus after what a Long Island man did.

Adam Frohlinger decided to propose to his girlfriend on the bus at New York’s Port Authority Bus Terminal on Thursday.

Leora Feigenbaum was on her way home from Manhattan when a Port Authority employee escorted the 20-year-old from the back of the line for the 167T line.

On board the bus she found flowers, decorations and her boyfriend  holding an engagement ring.

The 21-year-old says he picked the bus because he knew it was the last place his girlfriend would expect a proposal.

A day before the proposal, he told The Record of Bergen County he wasn't nervous.

"Confidence breeds success, that's the old motto, right?" he said.

But when the big moment came, "He was shaking on the bus," Feigenbaum told The Record.

"You only get engaged once, right?" her fiancé replied. "It's the greatest moment of our lives."

The juniors at Yeshiva University met while working at a summer camp in upstate New York two summers ago.

They’re planning an August wedding.
