Gov. Murphy Releases Report on New Jersey TransitLast Edited:
Governor Phil Murphy has unveiled the findings of an audit of New Jersey Transit describing the mass transportation system as plagued by top-heavy management, low morale, a lack of funding and little or no strategic planning.
The 179-page New Jersey Transit report recommends restructuring management and operating NJ Transit more like a business and less like a government agency.
It also urges creating an Office of Strategic Planning and an office dedicated to enhancing the value of NJ Transit's more-than $5 billion in assets.
Murphy made reforming NJ Transit one of his top priorities when he took office, calling it "a national disgrace."
Most recently, New Jersey Transit has been criticized for its recent train cancellations due to long-delayed, federally required safety work.
