For starters, I'm not sure of the exact cross streets. It looks like you have one going down Bloomfield Avenue, then joining the NLR for a few blocks, then branching off down Bergen Street, South Orange Avenue, Market Street, Broad Street, serves EWR & Jersey Gardens, then makes its way down the old CNJ line from Elizabeth to Cranford and parallels the Raritan Valley Line to Plainfield. The other one looks like it goes down Route 22 after serving EWR.

 

In any case, I'd rather send the existing shuttle between Newark Penn & Newark Broad further down Broad to Newark Airport and replace the AirTrain (since from what I heard, it needs to be replaced soon anyway. Not sure why it wasn't designed for a longer timeframe but whatever) and continue down to Jersey Gardens, Elizabethport, and back to Midtown Elizabeth and eventually to Cranford (not sure if Plainfield is really necessary. I'd rather just boost service on the Raritan Valley Line and have people transfer to that)

 

With those extra savings, you could run a line down Springfield Avenue from Newark Penn to the Irvington Bus Terminal.

Well I Forget To Add The Cross Streets At The Time But I Would Love To Do This But Unfortunately Now I Don't Have Enough Time Now So I Will Do It This Afternoon
