State and NJ Transit officials announced the fifth consecutive year of no fare increases for NJ Transit under the Murphy Administration. It was also announced that Wi-Fi will be installed on all the agency’s buses through Gov. Murphy’s FY2023 budget.
Since taking office in 2018, the Murphy Administration has committed historic state support to advance the agency’s strategic goals, capital projects, and recruiting efforts to boost performance, reliability, and the customer experience — without balancing NJ Transit’s budget on the backs of commuters.
“Without a single fare hike, NJ Transit has been drastically transformed and improved over the last five years,” said Gov. Murphy. “On-time performance is up, cancellations are down, and engineer ranks have been replenished. Under our administration, NJ Transit has been on the fast track to success and will remain a high priority in years to come. New Jersey commuters deserve a transit agency that works for them, and that is exactly what we are giving them.”
Under Gov. Murphy’s leadership, NJ Transit has made significant strides in improving the state’s public transit system for New Jerseyans who depend on it for work, medical appointments, leisure travel, and overall mobility.
In the last four years, the agency has awarded more than $4 billion in capital projects which are now underway or will soon enter the procurement phase.
In addition, the agency has also made significant investments in its fleet, including the continued advancement of bus electrification, and has also improved reliability and service for bus, rail, and light rail customers.
