Light Rail To Serve East Bergen County

NJT announced that the Hudson-Bergen Light Rail Transit (HBLRT) line will be extended to Tenafly on the former Northern Branch.  The line will be extended from its current northern terminus at Tonnelle Avenue, allowing through service to and from Hoboken.  The other alternative under consideration had been a diesel-powered shuttle.  Local rail advocates, including several from the New Jersey Association of Railroad Passengers (NJ-ARP) had pushed for the light-rail choice.
