This is actually what was done in Massachusetts a few years ago; it's helped them eliminate millions of dollars in waste.  I've been saying for a while now that this is what they should do in every state, including New York.

Some state lawmakers are considering the possibility of merging NJ Transit with NJ Department of Transportation and the NJ Turnpike Authority to save money and invest in roads, bridges and rail projects

It makes sense. Remember that the state Transportation Commissioner already chairs the NJT and Turnpike Authority boards.
