Legislation looks to revive New Brunswick light rail

February 22, 2018

The last serious pause given to the New Brunswick light rail was the Greater New Brunswick Area Corridor Study, a $200,000 study published in 2001, that hashed out a route that would run between park-and-ride stations at Piscataway and East Brunswick.

Under the plan, the route would make its way along Route 18 and then Ryders Lane, making stops in Piscataway, New Brunswick, Milltown, East Brunswick and all five Rutgers-New Brunswick-area campuses.

Not much has changed on the road map, according to Jon Carnegie, director of the Voorhees Institute of Transportation at Rutgers.
