ONLY ON CVP: A charter bus en route to pick up students attending Ridgewood High School’s senior prom tonight got stuck going up a steep hill near a set of railroad tracks, blocking all commuter trains and temporarily stranding several youngsters.

It began at 5:45 p.m., when the driver of the New York State bus failed to negotiate a steep and winding hill leading from the HoHoKus train station to Glenwood Avenue in Ridgewood.

Ridgewood and NJ Transit police halted all trains to and from Hoboken until the bus could be towed.

The scene was cleared at about 6:35 p.m.
