Transport of New Jersey (TNJ), earlier Public Service Transportation and then Public Service Coordinated Transport, was a street railway (after 1928) and bus company in the U.S. state of New Jersey from 1917 to 1980, when New Jersey Transit took over their operations. It was owned by the Public Service Corporation, now the Public Service Electric and Gas Company.

Public Service Transportation was formed in 1917 as a bus-operating subsidiary of the Public Service Corporation, supplementing the Public Service Railway's trolley lines. In 1928, the operations of the two companies were merged to form Public Service Coordinated Transport. The name was changed to Transport of New Jersey in 1971, and the new New Jersey Transit Corporation took over their operations in 1980.
