New Jersey Transit's board this week adopted the 2021 update to a five-year capital plan along with the fiscal- year 2022 authorization to secure funding.

"The capital plan is a comprehensive roadmap to building the next generation transportation system in New Jersey while maintaining current services," said New Jersey Department of Transportation Commissioner and NJ Transit Board Chair Diane Gutierrez-Scaccetti in a news release.

"It is critical that we make these investments in our infrastructure to power the future of sustainable transportation and deliver the world-class service that our customers expect and deserve," she said.

The capital plan funds continue state-of-good-repair investments in transit stations and infrastructure, new and upgraded infrastructure, investments in the Northeast Corridor, fare modernization, safety initiatives and bus and rail car purchases, according to the release.  

The capital plan contains two sets of projects. The first set includes projects already funded by existing or expected resources. The second set identifies proposed projects for which funding has yet to be identified but vital to NJ Transit’s service delivery.
