Union City subterranean rail station feasibility


Recommended Posts

Greetings to all,


Here's a question regarding a transit dream of mine. I don't know a whole lot about rail infrastructure, but I figure a lot of you do.


Would it be feasible at some point in the future for New Jersey Transit to construct a station in what is now the tunnel between Secaucus Junction and New York Penn Station? I'm picturing one that would stop at Bergenline Avenue in Union City.


Has anyone proposed this before? I met Metsfan once on a Trenton-bound train and he told me someone had once discussed it with him.

No, Amtrak owns the line and the last thing they want is a train stopping in the tunnels to pick up and discharge passengers. Could it be done maybe but its never going to happen. Also on weekends one tunnel is closed for work.
