NJ Camden light rail may see funding
Author: Lackawanna484

The proposed toll hike for the Atlantic City Expressway includes money for the new Camden to Gloucester light rail.

Light rail is a favored project of Senate President Steve Sweeney (D-Gloucester).

Any part of exp-PRSL restoration is welcome, but they have a long way to go. Lack of service to the Cape May County is sorely needed. Problem is most of today's seashore travelers don't even remember the PRSL or how quickly one was whisked to the shore. Plus the seashore resorts themselves seem to care less. As a former South Jersey resident I find it appalling.

If NJT was a better railroad than what it presently is, there would not only be routes heading into and out of NYC. Philadelphia would become a hub for NJT rail routes-routes that run frequently, especially during rush hours and daily. The route that light rail will run on to Glassboro would probably become a daily commuter rail route to Cape May featuring stops in towns like Newfield, Vineland, Millville, and Woodbine. Back to the light rail side of things-Glassboro will benefit from light rail as well as the other towns in between. Students who attend Rowan College would appreciate having a train to take to Philadelphia rather than taking a bus. Of course, even though people will have the light rail option available, they still have to switch at Camden Walter Rand to go into Center City.
