George D. Warrington passes

Posted on December 27, 2007

George D. Warrington, former executive director of NJ Transit, passed away at his home on Monday. He was 55.  


Warrington, who took control of the state's transit system at a time when its commuter trains were severely overcrowded at peak hours, added 100 trains and pressed the agency to accelerate the turnaround time for cars that needed maintenance. He also helped jump-start plans for a new $8 billion tunnel under the Hudson River.  


The cause of death was pancreatic cancer, according to a report in The Record. Warrington is survived by his wife, Hope; a son, David; two stepdaughters, Brittany and Kendall; and a brother, Marc.
