Speaker Coughlin: We Share the Governor’s Commitment to NJ Transit

(TRENTON) – Assembly Speaker Craig Coughlin (D-Middlesex) today reaffirmed the Legislature’s commitment to NJ Transit and the commuters it serves:

“As Gov. Murphy said this morning, the budget we sent him would help NJ Transit better serve the thousands of commuters who rely on our public transportation system. The Legislature’s budget mirrors the governor’s priority to increase funding for NJ Transit by $167 million. NJ Transit has unfortunately become synonymous with delays and service interruptions. Our budget maintains the additional funding proposed by the governor to help this beleaguered agency turn things around and improve service. As we’ve been saying from the get-go, our budgets share many of the same priorities. Our commitment to making NJ Transit a more reliable system for commuters is one of them.”
