Four New Jersey communities have received grants totaling $1 million in the 2018 Transit Village grant program.

Pleasantville received $400,000, Orange $195,000, Asbury Park $325,000 and Somerville $80,000.

The Transit Village Program is funded through the State Transportation Trust Fund. The 23-cent per gallon gas tax increase as part of the TTF renewal in 2016 more than doubled the overall amount of money for the New Jersey Department of Transportation’s Local Aid programs to $400 million, most of which goes to County and Municipal Aid. It enables local governments to significantly reduce or eliminate reliance on local property tax dollars to support their projects.

So the gas tax was increased, how come the roads are still in need of repair?
