NJ TRANSIT is working with Passaic, Bergen and Hudson Counties to assess the restoration of passenger service between Hawthorne and Hackensack. Of particular interest are development opportunities and constraints in the study corridor and extending service into Hudson County connecting to the Hudson-Bergen Light Rail Transit System (HBLRTS).
The study will build off previous efforts and consider a range of modal options, station locations, and the potential of transit friendly land uses along the corridor.
Preliminary goals of the project include: Improve mobility options improve transportation connectivity, support economic growth opportunities, develop a cost-effective project, & enhance quality of life and minimize adverse environmental impacts.
A public meeting will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 13, 2019 to share information on this project. The meeting is at Eastside High School, 150 Park Ave., Paterson, NJ.
