NJ Transit and the North Jersey Transportation Planning Authority announced Wednesday that millions in COVID relief funding will go toward multiple transit projects.
A total of $43.6 million will go to seven projects that will advance sustainability, bus electrification, a pilot shuttle program, bike sheds and to provide first and last mile transportation solutions.
Officials said this will be a big step toward a greener and more sustainable transport infrastructure. 
"Public transit is vital to communities across the state, with people depending on it to get to work, buy groceries, and go to the doctors," said Sen. Bob Menendez. "I'm proud to have secured this funding which will advance critical NJ TRANSIT projects.”
