Press Release

Washington, D.C. – Today, the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) announced that New Jersey Transit (NJ Transit) has been awarded federal financial assistance through the Access and Mobility Partnership Grants Program.

“These grants, which total $60,600, will help NJ Transit improve transit programs for our seniors, individuals with disabilities, and low-income individuals,” said Congressman Sires. “There are many people in our communities who do not enjoy easy access to transportation but nevertheless need to remain mobile. This grant award will help our State improve its transit service so that no one in need is left behind, and I look forward to seeing what NJ Transit does with this opportunity.”

FTA’s Access and Mobility Partnership Grants are aimed at financing projects that help improve standard and non-emergency medical transportation services and supporting better coordination between healthcare providers and transit agencies on transit options for individuals in need.
