Press Release Number: 103-2015

Action is part of agency's efforts to keep public informed and increase transparency

The Port Authority today released financial data through the second quarter at its monthly Board of Commissioners meeting – part of the agency’s ongoing initiatives to enhance transparency and to keep the public informed about its financial performance.

Earlier this year, the Board announced that it would release quarterly unaudited financial information that covers the agency's facilities, operations and holdings. The information will be updated every three months, providing a greater public window into the Port Authority's financial results and position.

"The Port Authority’s release today of its mid-year financial results is another important step in our ongoing effort to make our operations more transparent to the public we serve," said Port Authority Chairman John Degnan. "We hope such reforms will help maintain the public’s trust in the agency in the years to come."

"The public has a right to know how the Port Authority spends its money," said Port Authority Vice Chairman Scott Rechler. "This is another step forward in bringing transparency and reform to the bistate agency."

The Port Authority's unaudited financial statements for the six months ending June 30, 2015 are on the agency's website at
