Three of the employees were fired and one was suspended for 30 days.

NJ Transit outfitted 480 vehicles with GPS technology in the winter of 2013.

Spokesman John Durso Jr. tells The Record all 10 of the employees who were disciplined had violated NJ Transit’s policy against taking the vehicles for personal use.

Durso says the agency has seen a drop in usage and in gasoline.

Durso says the fleet logged nearly 109,000 hours from January to March of 2013, compared with 68,069 hours for the same three-month period in 2014. Fuel usage dropped from 9,314 gallons to 7,099 for the period.
