NJ Transit board passes revised cuts
NJ Transit officials passed a revised plan today that restores more than $4 million worth of cuts announced in March. The measure was passed unanimously.
Fare increases for local bus and light rail riders will be scaled back to 10 percent. Train fare and intercity bus fares will increase by 25 percent as originally announced.
Bus routes in Middlesex, Morris, Monmouth, Somerset, Warren and Sussex counties are among those that will see service restored.
?In these extraordinary financial times we are learning to do more with less and by doing so, NJ Transit will emerge a stronger, more financially stable agency, serving the needs of New Jersey with a quality public transportation system,? said Executive Director Jim Weinstein.
