New Jersey Transitís Bus Subsidy Program

The Commission held a public hearing in July 1992 into allegations of serious irregularities in NJTís $5 million Bus Subsidy Program. The Commission revealed that two bus companies had, largely through the inattention of NJT overseers, been able to obtain several million dollars in subsidies for the personal and private commercial expenses of the companiesí owners. As a result of the Commissionís findings, NJT undertook an extensive reform effort. Criminal charges stemming from the Commissionís probe resulted in prison terms and/or community service and restitution totaling more than $750,000 by five individuals in February 1995.
