NJ Transit To Discuss Christie’s Cuts

nj transit busNJ Transit bus and rail riders Wednesday might learn what the future holds for fares and service. NJ Transit officials expect to discuss Gov. Chris Christie’s plan to withhold $32.7 million from the agency’s $296 million subsidy for the current fiscal year. Christie told a joint session of the Legislature last week that NJ Transit must improve it’s efficiency, revisit its “rich union contracts and end “the patronage hiring that has typified its past.” The action was part of an executive order that Christie signed to freeze $1.6 billion┬áin unspent money. Christie said he was taking that step to help cut the state’s $2.2 billion budget hole. AP

  1. NJ transit bus service to lakewood is a joke. Compare the service we get to other towns like Freehold or Toms River. Our express buses are shared with Brick, don’t between 8am and 4pm and there is no service on sunday.

    Thank goodness for the Kollel bus.
