Why were crowd gates removed from NJ buses?

Recommended Posts

Longtime riders of buses in NJ remember the buses having crowd gates inside of them past the front door. I saw then on the then-TNJ buses on the Philly-NJ routes usually served by suburban GM fishbowls and Flxible transit and suburban buses. When the Flxible 870's arrived in 1981 [1000 series], they did not have the crowd gates, and they were subsequently removed from the other GM and Flxible buses. After 1981, every NJT transit and suburban buses do not have the gates. [note that the GM fishbowl suburbans were replaced with MCI MC9 buses which did not need the gates].



These gates were required by law, was the law repealed, or did NJT and others simply decided to remove the gates?
