(Kate Hinds, Transportation Nation) New Jersey Governor Christie released his 2012 budget today. And while nearly every agency took a hit, transportation spending will see an increase in state funding.
The budget also specifies that one of the goals this year is to avoid fare increases and expand bus service. This will be welcomed by New Jersey Transit passengers, who experienced a 22% fare hike last year.
Kate Slevin, the executive director of the Tri-State Transportation Campaign, was cautiously optimistic. "It's good news for transit riders – and drivers as well," she said, adding that more mass transit would help reduce New Jersey's famous traffic congestion.
