Key Points:
  • All of the above payments can only be made from legally available funds in the NJTA’s General Reserve Fund and are subordinate to payments to NJTA bondholders and all other obligations under the NJTA’s General Bond Resolution.
  • Payments are subject to the terms of the Authority’s Toll Facilities Agreement with the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA). (i.e., Excess toll revenues can only be used for purposes identified in Federal Title 23.)
  • As reflected in the FY 2017 Governor’s Budget Message and as authorized in budget language in the FY 2017 Appropriations Act, $204 million of NJTA funds are dedicated to support NJ Transit operations.
