WOODBRIDGE, N.J. (AP) — More than 1,900 New Jersey Turnpike and Garden State Parkway employees will no longer get a free ride to work.

The New Jersey Turnpike Authority board on Tuesday voted to eliminate free E-ZPass accounts that cover rides for employees to and from their jobs.

The board also voted to stop some nonunion employees from cashing out unused sick and vacation time at the end of each year. Typically, that’s done at retirement. The practice has cost the authority $3.8 million a year.

The votes come one week after the state comptroller found the authority paid its employees $30 million in unjustified bonuses and squandered millions more on health insurance while tolls increased.
