Glen Ridge, NJ – Gov. Phil Murphy, joined by Lieutentant Gov. Sheila Oliver and Essex County Executive Joseph DiVincenzo, visited Glen Ridge Train Station Monday to make an announcement about NJ Transit.

“For the fifth year in a row, NJ TRANSIT commuters will not see a fare hike,” said Murphy, adding that under his administration, on-time performance is up, cancellations are down and engineer ranks have been replenished.

“Our 2023 budget will also support the installation of WiFi on all NJ TRANSIT buses. We’re keeping your bus ride affordable, making it more dependable, and making it more productive,” said Murphy.
