  1. This topic is about creating a efficient Bus Ticketing System that is currently fragmented and poorly executed throughout the entire NJT Bus operations. I am foremost a bus transit fan, former commuter and now a bus operator for NJ transit. I am here to share my input on the current bus fare collection system that needs attention both from the public, bus operators and leaders of NJT and union. I am aware NJT board recently selected a contractor to modernize the fare collection system without full detail on the design and execution. Currently the NJ app is unintuitive and has a feel it was created back in year 2000. It is subject to fraudulent use due to the fact bus operators are forced to use only visual validation. This creates potential customer service issues and backlogs when boarding passengers. The current fare registers from Parkeon do not support "tap and go" technology. A big part of how to improve transportation efficiency is improving transit ticketing systems. Ticketing systems have to be quick and practical to allow for prompt loading and unloading of passengers. “Tap and go” is the new mantra for bus fares. Not: sign in app, wait and guess Please share your thoughts

    Counting Lakeland 17186-17240 and NJ Transit 18001-18080 we have 50 more buses to go to complete the 2nd year 184 bus order commencement for 3rd year order announcement should be made on July 11th board meeting note nj transits fiscal budget year begins in July We should also hear news on the order of 290 40 footers bidding contract announcement by July
  4. 40 footers will go to Oradell and Market St garages due to facility limitations. Side note: In 2015/2016 NJ Transit/NJDOT applied for federal aid to build new garage replacement for Oradell to be built in Teterboro (75 million dollar) under the federal HUD Flood Resilience program. However, it was not awarded.
