New Jersey Transit is the public transit provider throughout the state of New Jersey in the United States. New Jersey Transit also provides rail and bus service into New York and Philadelphia, as well as light rail service in certain urban areas.

The NJ Transit system is the third largest public transit system in the country, behind that of New York City and Los Angeles, and is the largest statewide system, carrying nearly 223 million passengers per year.

History

The Public Transportation Act of 1979 established New Jersey Transit to act as the statewide transit agency, to "acquire, operate and contract for transportation service in the public interest." New Jersey Transit took over the bus operations of Transport of New Jersey in 1980, and established rail operations in 1983, after freight operator Conrail was prohibited from providing passenger service. In 1984, NJ Transit acquired Mercer Metro, and added its system to its operational portfolio. All three subsidiaries were streamlined following a reorganization of the agency in 1994.

Structure

New Jersey Transit operates 236 bus routes, 10 rail routes and three light rail lines using a fleet of over 2000 transit and cruiser buses, 711 locomotive and rail cars, and 45 light rail vehicles.

The rail lines are:

  • Northeast Corridor (Trenton-New York City)
  • North Jersey Coast Line (Bay Head-Rahway)
  • Atlantic City Line (Atlantic City-Philadelphia)
  • Raritan Valley Line (High Bridge-New York City)
  • Gladstone Branch (Gladstone-New York City)
  • Morristown Line (Hackettstown-New York City via Morristown)
  • Montclair-Boonton Line (Hackettstown-New York City via Boonton and Montclair)
  • Main Line (Suffern-Hoboken via Clifton)
  • Bergen County Line (Suffern-Hoboken via Rutherford)
  • Pascack Valley Line (Spring Valley-Hoboken)

The three light rail routes are:

  • Newark Light Rail (former Newark City Subway)
  • Hudson Bergen Light Rail
  • River LINE (Trenton-Camden)

Bus service is divided into three operating divisions, each with a number of bus depots and routes assigned.

Northern Division bus facilities:

  • Fairview Bus Garage
  • Greenville Bus Garage, Jersey City
  • Market Street Bus Garage, Paterson
  • Meadowlands Bus Garage, Secaucus
  • Oradell Bus Garage
  • Wayne Bus Garage

Central Division bus facilities:

  • Big Tree Bus Garage, Nutley
  • Hilton Bus Garage, Maplewood
  • Howell Bus Garage, the only bus facility equipped to handle CNG-fueled buses
  • Ironbound Bus Garage, Newark
  • Morris Bus Garage, Morristown
  • Orange Bus Garage

Southern Division Bus facilities:

  • Egg Harbor Township Bus Garage
  • Hamilton Bus Garage
  • Newton Avenue Bus Garage, Camden
  • Washington Township Bus Garage, Turnersville

In addition to the buses directly operated by the company, New Jersey Transit also provides buses to operators providing service on NJ Transit routes under contract, as well as private carriers operating their own routes. This brings the total NJ Transit bus fleet to well over 3,000 buses.
