NEW JERSEY TRANSIT LIGHT RAIL TRANSIT INITIATIVES

New Jersey Transit currently has four light rail transit initiatives under way in the state of New Jersey: the Newark City Subway rehabilitation, the Hudson-Bergen Light Rail Transit System, the Newark-Elizabeth Rail Link, and the Burlington-Camden-Gloucester Transit Corridor. An overview of each of the prospective light rail systems is presented along with comparative information of interest to the professional transit community. Physical descriptions of each corridor and line are given, and the unique conditions that pertain to each project are discussed. Efforts to coordinate the planning of all four initiatives in the interest of achieving agencywide consistency on such issues as operations and safety, engineering and design standards, standardized equipment (including vehicles), procurement procedures, and documentation are discussed.
