Morristown, N.J. – NJ TRANSIT is proposing an increase in fares and reduction to service in order to offset a budget deficit that would take effect in September 2015 and October 1, 2015 respectively. The proposed fare increase would be an average of nine percent for the majority of NJ TRANSIT customers. The proposed changes would affect bus and rail service and fares in Morris County and statewide.

NJ TRANSIT will hold nine scheduled public hearings and one information session beginning Saturday, May 16, 2015 to allow the public the opportunity to learn more about the proposed fare increases and service changes and offer comments before the plan is considered by the Board of Directors on July 8, 2015.
