NJ Transit is getting a boost from the federal government to upgrade and expand its bus service in New Jersey.

Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood has announced that NJ Transit will receive $76 million in federal funds. The grant is part of $787 million being given out to support projects in 48 states.

About $46 million will go to replace aging NJ Transit buses with newer, more fuel-efficient models.

Another $27 million will go toward putting hybrid buses on the road between southern New Jersey and New York City.

And $2.6 million is earmarked for expanded bus service between Camden and Philadelphia.
