Federal stimulus funding is enabling NJ TRANSIT to accelerate more than a dozen key capital projects that will create and preserve jobs. NJ TRANSIT is investing more than $420 million provided by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) in transit projects that will build system capacity, extend accessibility and ensure service reliability for decades to come. Major investments include the long-awaited River LINE/Atlantic City Rail Line transfer station; River LINE frequency and safety improvements; minibuses that serve riders in rural areas and people with disabilities; station and parking rehabilitation projects; track and bridge repairs; major equipment overhauls; and a $130 million investment in the Mass Transit Tunnel project. All projects will get underway this spring and summer. Construction will begin in 2009 and early 2010. Recovery.gov
