NJ Transit Hikes Go Into Effect Saturday

Saturday, May 01, 2010 - 07:18 AM

Succumbing to the fiscal realities faced by transit systems across the nation, NJ Transit begins drastic fare hikes and service cuts today. The third largest transit system in the nation will see hikes of 25 percent on commuter and long distance buses -- up to 50 percent if you account for the elimination of off-peak fares. Local buses and light rail will see hikes of up to 10 percent. The cuts are the largest in the three decades, but they won't stave off big service cuts, being phased in later this month.
