NEWARK, N.J. (AP) - New Jersey's mass transit agency failed to renew its trademarks.

New Jersey Transit has applied to register its logo and advertising slogans that are familiar to train and bus passengers.

NJ Transit spokesman John Durso Jr. tells The Record  newspaper a lawyer hired by the agency incorrectly told the agency that its trademark protection was good until 2018. But the deadline was actually 2012 and they expired between January and March 2013.

Durso says the error was discovered during a review in December.

Lawyer David Himelman, who had been the agency's attorney, tells the newspaper a former associate in his office had miscalculated the time.

Until it renews its trademarks, NJ Transit is using service marks for the time being.
