Revived Rail Line Across NJ Could Bring Economic Boost

April 7, 2023 |

Reestablishing a rail connection between New York City and Scranton, Pa. could generate more than $80 million in new economic activity for a region that includes northern New Jersey, according to a recent analysis of the proposed project.

NJ SEED: Rail service between Scranton, PA and NYC was discontinued over 50 years ago. Population growth in Northern NJ and North Eastern PA suggests that restoration of rail service will enhance commuter options and reawaken tourism interest in the region.
