NJ Transit wants public feedback

NJ Transit will hold several public hearings to let riders address officials regarding proposed fare hikes and service cuts.

NJ Transit is facing a $300 million budget gap for the upcoming fiscal year. Gov. Chris Christie (R-N.J.) announced an 11 percent cut to the agency's state subsidy last month.

NJ Transit officials unveiled a plan to help bridge the deficit by increasing fares by 25 percent across the system. The agency also wants to eliminate 32 commuter trains and 50 bus routes.

The proposal calls for the changes to take effect May 1.
