KEARNY, N.J. — Governor Phil Murphy, Department of Transportation Commissioner Diane Gutierrez-Scaccetti, and NJ Transit President and CEO Kevin Corbett today recognized NJ Transit’s latest locomotive engineer training class for completing their classroom training. The Governor also announced that his Fiscal Year 2021 budget proposal will not include a fare hike for NJ Transit, his third budget proposal in a row to not include an increase in ticket prices for commuters. Under the previous administration, NJ Transit raised fares by 36 percent. The class of seven trainees will be graduating in the upcoming weeks after they complete the final requirements and certifications necessary to become locomotive engineers with NJ Transit.
