TRENTON – In response to growing numbers of violent incidents aimed at NJ Transit workers, a proposed bill moving through the Legislature would ban passengers from NJT’s trains and buses if they’re found guilty of assault.

The bill, S4071/A6013, was endorsed by the Senate transportation committee Monday though was not taken up by the panel’s Assembly counterpart, which will meet again once more in December before the legislative session ends in early January.

Ron Sabol, New Jersey state director of SMART-TD, which represents NJ Transit workers, said the bill would allow people to be banned from accessing public transportation for a year if they’re found by a court to have committed an assault.
