New Jersey Governor Murphy Proposes $242 Million More for NJ Transit

Gov. Phil Murphy’s proposed $37.4 billion state budget adds $242 million more into NJ Transit.

Added funding for the agency’s operations would be in addition to $141 million allocated in the fiscal year 2018 budget for a total of $383 million for NJ Transit operations in fiscal year 2019, according to budget documents released Tuesday. 

Murphy announced the funding during his first budget address:

“To help residents get to school or work, we will restore the funding that New Jersey Transit needs to once again be a reliable and respected service,” Murphy said. “This budget will nearly triple funding to NJ Transit, an additional $242 million investment to get the agency back on its feet.”
