Poll: NJ Transit Fare Hikes — On Track or Off the Rails?

NJ Spotlight | July 16, 2015 | Polling
Is this another undeclared tax on the middle class, or a smart step to maintain responsible fiscal policy?

NJ Transit approved an average fare hike of 9 percent this week, over the objections of many commuters and transit advocates. It was the first fare hike since 2010, when fares jumped an average of 22 percent. Some experts claim that the state is playing games with funding sources and not addressing the big issues, while Gov. Chris Christie says the fare hikes are necessary because of his tight fiscal policy.
