Hoboken Awarded $1 Million in Transportation Grant Funding

Hoboken, NJ - Thursday, February 22nd, 2018

The New Jersey Department of Transportation announced this week that the City of Hoboken will receive over $1 million in Municipal Aid grant funding – more than double the amount typically awarded annually.

“This tremendous increase in funding will help us implement important pedestrian safety improvements, road repairs, and other important transportation-related projects,” said Mayor Bhalla. “I thank Governor Murphy for his support and for understanding the importance of maintaining and improving our infrastructure.”

The City of Hoboken was awarded a total of $1,032,700.00 in Municipal Aid for FY2018.

“Improving our transportation infrastructure is one of my top priorities, because a robust, reliable, and efficient transportation system is the backbone of our economy,” added Mayor Bhalla. “I look forward to working with Governor Murphy, our State elected officials, and transportation agencies to renovate the Hoboken Terminal, improve bus and rail service, and provide subsidized ferry fares for commuters.”
