SECAUCUS - A tribute to public transportation champion Sen. Frank Lautenberg was held today at the New Jersey Transit transfer station in Secaucus.

The senator's body was then loaded onto an Amtrak train to be transported to his final resting place in Washington, D.C.

It is fitting that Lautenberg's last stop in New Jersey was at the station, which was given his name after the senator secured $450 million in federal funding for its construction.

The senator's family accompanied his body on the three-hour trip to Washington.
