Rep. Payne, Jr. Helps Secure $256 Million Grant for NJ Transit 

Washington, D.C. — Rep. Donald M. Payne, Jr., Chairman of the Subcommittee on Railroads, Pipelines, and Hazardous Materials for the House Committee on Transportation & Infrastructure, announced today that New Jersey (NJ) Transit received a nearly $256 million grant from the Federal Transit Administration.  The money will help NJ Transit with system maintenance, service and equipment upgrades, and help to keep employees on the payroll during the COVID-19 global pandemic.  The funds are from the American Rescue Plan and Rep. Payne, Jr. helped write the language in that bill that would provide funds for area transit organizations, such as NJ Transit.

“This is a great day for NJ Transit and all New Jersey commuters,” said Rep. Payne, Jr.  “This grant will help improve the speed and service of rail and bus lines throughout my district and state.  I know NJ Transit has been struggling during this pandemic.  I am proud to have included the language in the American Rescue Plan to help NJ Transit continue to serve the people of New Jersey effectively.  I want to thank Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg for approving this grant and continuing the Biden Administration’s commitment to commuter rail.”
