New Jersey Transit


By 1928, most local public transportation in New Jersey was part of a single system. In that year, the Public Service Railway Co. was renamed Public Service Coordinated Transport. That company was a subsidiary of Public Service Corp. of New Jersey, later Public Service Electric & Gas Co., providing those utilities throughout New Jersey. Public Service Coordinated Transport was renamed Transport of New Jersey in 1971, and in 1980 became the state owned New Jersey Transit.

New Jersey is a small densely populated state, extensively covered by its one statewide transit system. Thus enabling the possibility of long continuous interurban journeys exclusively using local transit.
