NJ Transit Uses GPS Tracking to Weed out Waste, Fraud, and Abuse

NJ Transit is among a growing number of public and private entities turning to GPS to track vehicles and employee productivity and behavior. -

Ten New Jersey Transit employees, including three who were fired, have been disciplined after GPS tracking discovered fraud, abuse, and waste.

NJ Transit has outfitted 480 vehicles with GPS systems. NJ Transit spokesman, John Durso Jr., says of the measure, “This was a proactive, cost-savings initiative taken by NJ Transit,” and confirmed the disciplinary action against the employees.

About six months after installing GPS, Durso said the agency has already seen a steep decrease in vehicle usage including a “40 percent drop in hours used, and a 31 percent drop in gallons of fuel used.”
