Transit system must know where it's going

I look forward to our continued partnership to fix NJ TRANSIT. At the end of the day, we still must answer to the commuter whose train was cancelled, or whose bus is over capacity. And, I won't be happy until we bat 1.000. If a transit system doesn't know where it's going, it's never going to get there. That's what our strategic and capital plans will change.

Share congestion pricing revenue between NYC and NJ

New Jersey drivers are used to heavy traffic getting into Manhattan but "congestion pricing" is something different, and potentially even more aggravating. State lawmakers in New York approved a first-in-the-nation plan that will impose fees on drivers entering Manhattan south of 61st Street, possibly starting in 2021.

Under the plan, drivers using the Lincoln Tunnel and Holland Tunnel would receive a credit based on what they pay in tolls. However, no break would be offered to motorists taking the George Washington Bridge, as noted by Gov. Phil Murphy in a letter to N.Y. Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

Murphy, in his letter to Cuomo, asked Cuomo to consider sharing some of the revenue with NJ Transit and PATH. According to AAA Northeast, which opposes the plan, 80% of the revenues will go toward the subways. The Long Island and Metro-north railroads each would get 10 percent [while NJ transit would get none]. Cuomo had not publicly responded as of Monday afternoon.
