NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy announced on Tuesday that there would not be a fare hike on the NJ Transit in 2020.

At an event to honor a new class of locomotive engineers, Murphy said that he will not include a hare hike in his next budget proposal. This is his third consecutive budget without a fare hike. 

"Today, we celebrate another class of future locomotive engineers who will improve safety, reliability, and services for the hundreds of thousands of New Jersey residents who ride NJ Transit every day," Murphy in a statement. "I am also proud to announce that I will not include a fare hike in my Fiscal Year 2021 budget proposal. We are on the path to the resurgence of NJ Transit as a system that commuters can rely on and trust and I want to make sure that riders are not further burdened while we continue working to improve the system."
