NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — New Jersey's transportation commissioner says he doesn't support a proposal to eliminate overnight PATH train service between New York and New Jersey.

Jamie Fox told NJ.com that he thinks it's "a bad idea" to cut the service. Fox made the comment Monday after he spoke before the North Jersey Transportation Planning Authority in Newark.

Fox said he has discussed the issue with Gov. Chris Christie, bus said the governor has reserved judgment on the issue.

The proposal to eliminate overnight PATH service was one recommendation of a reform report issued last month by the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey. The agency is looking to reduce a $300 million PATH deficit.
