IMPROVING ACCESS TO NEWARK AIRPORT
A number of alternatives which would connect downtown Newark to the airport terminal were studied, and 8 of these were selected for deeper investigation. Substantial work was carried out in estimating the potential travel and construction costs of these systems. All but 2 of the alternatives involve significant improvements in rail routes near the airport, and would require elaborate engineering studies and substantial construction time to develop. For this reason the report recommends immediate action to provide an improved and regularly operated bus shuttle service - which would connect the major downtown rail terminals, as well as the central business district to the old airport, and later to the new one.
