2016-2017 Regular Session
This bill, designated as the "Fare Affordability and Ridership Empowerment (FARE) Act," places restrictions on the amount that the New Jersey Transit Corporation (NJ Transit) may increase the cost of a discounted fare for a ticket or pass for bus or rail passenger service under NJ Transit's programs offering reduced fares for senior citizens over the age of 62, persons with disabilities, and students attending an institution of higher education. Under the bill, starting on October 2, 2015, NJ Transit is prohibited from increasing the discounted fares under these programs for a period of three years, and not more than two percent annually thereafter. NJ Transit is also prohibited from increasing regular, non-discounted fares to compensate for any loss of revenue that may result from the bill.
