NJ Transit Scrambling To Register Its Logos After Trademarks Lapsed  In Error : News     January 30, 2014

NY is hurrying to register seven trademarks - including its well-known orange, magenta and blue bands - with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office because it failed to renew the marks before a 2012 deadline and a six-month grace period expired. 

An official at the trademark office confirmed last week that one of NJ Transit's most recognizable trademark slogans, "NH TRANSIT The Way To Go," accompanied by black and white bars, bands, and lines, is among the marks canceled after lapsing for more than a year.
