PANYNJ proposes $8.3B capital, operating budget for 2023


The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey last week released its 2023 budget proposal of $8.3 billion for capital and operating expenditures.

The budget contains $3.7 billion for operating expenses, $2.9 billion for annual capital spending and $1.7 billion for debt service and deferred expenses, PANYNJ officials said in a press release. 

Following a $3 billion loss during the pandemic, the proposed budget prioritizes safety, security, cleanliness and customer service while improving and rebuilding legacy infrastructure, they said.

The capital budget calls for implementation of a new fare collection system for Port Authority Trans-Hudson (PATH) and AirTrain riders, and a capacity expansion on the PATH commuter railroad.

The proposed budget also would allocate more than $55 million to advance the authority's net-zero emissions and climate resiliency goals.

The operating budget reflects a $112 million increase, or 3.2%, from 2022. The increase was attributed to additional staffing, security and maintenance costs due to growing volume at the port authority facilities.
