The Authority consists of seven members, two ex-officio and five public members appointed by the Governor. Board meetings are scheduled on an as needed basis and notices of the meetings are published in the newspapers and on this Website. The meetings are conducted at New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) Headquarters in Ewing, NJ and are open to the public.

The Authority’s financing process is directed at issuing sufficient bonds to pay for NJDOT/NJ TRANSIT Capital Program expenditures previously requested and authorized by the Legislature.

The level of bonding needed is based on the Authority's capital needs. Audited financial statements are prepared each year summarizing the Authority's financing activity and current financial position.

The Authority was created in 1984 by legislation that has been amended several times. The current Transportation Trust Fund Statute (N.J.S.A. 27:1B-1, et seq.) and dedication of revenues found in the State Constitution serve as the blueprint for all Authority actions.
