Considering how old the previous cars were?

Anything made in this century is reasonably "new" to me.

South of Newark, looking North (note H&M/PATH tracks to left).

Unless the negative is flipped-in which case we're facing South, and that's the South Newark station ahead. (the alternative is that it's the old Newark station before the current one was built)

Pretty sure this is the junction with the Lehigh Valley (where the NJT Raritan Valley Line enters nowadays).

Sell $3B in real estate to fund new Hudson River rail tunnel, top Dem tells Port Authority


By Larry Higgs | NJ Advance Media for NJ.com
Email the author
on March 17, 2015 at 1:45 PM, updated March 17, 2015 at 5:22 PM

NEWARK -- State senate president Steve Sweeney called on the Port Authority to sell at least $3 billion in real estate to help fund construction of a new Hudson River rail tunnel.

Sweeney, who made the public call at a Newark Penn Station press conference today, said he spoke to Port Authority chairman John Degnan about the idea.

"He recognized the need," Sweeney said. "We need to send a message to Amtrak and the federal government we're willing to work to come up with a funding component."

Sweeney was flanked by leading Democratic lawmakers and transportation experts who all called on the Port Authority to sell real estate to help fund Amtrak's Gateway Tunnel project. Sweeney and other speakers stressed the need for new tunnels after Amtrak revealed the old tunnels were damaged by flooding from Hurricane Sandy and would have to be shut down, one at a time for one year for repairs.

Well I would disagree with selling 1 WTC to fund the tunnel. Instead, why don't they issue a large amount of bonds and use the positive cash flow from the WTC to finance the interest payments.. seems like a much more financially sustainable method in contrast to simply selling off one of the organization's most lucrative assets to 'prove a point' or 'show commitment'.

I'm sure with the both the backing of the states of NJ and NY, the Port Authority can negotiate a significantly lower downpayment than usual - this is additionally disregarding the low, 0-0.25% federal funds rate.

Ya but it comes from the long history of those sixteen acres below Vesey St. It also comes from a complete misunderstanding of how Public Authorities use TODs to help offset costs caused by capital construction and general operating costs for projects that it cannot collect in fares, tolls or taxes.

moved this post to the next page

Here were or I should say on hold Transit proposals for the I-287 Corridor , I like 4A & 4B..

http://www.tzbsite.com/public-involv...res-feb07.html

Quote:

Alternative 1 is the no-build alternative, one that is required for analysis in environmental impact statements. It is the yardstick against which the impacts of build alternatives are measured. Under this alternative, maintenance of the bridge and the Thruway would continue in order to keep the facilities in a safe operating condition. In addition, this alternative does include approved program improvements for I-287 in Westchester County, as do all other alternatives. However, it should be noted that no build does not mean no impact. There are transportation, environmental and cost impacts related to doing nothing.

Alternative 2 involves rehabilitation of the existing bridge to meet current design and seismic standards. It also includes implementation of Transportation Demand Management/Transportation Systems Management (TDM/TSM) measures such as congestion pricing, ramp metering and increased E-Z Pass usage. Some of these measures are already being implemented by the Thruway Authority. These TDM/TSM measures are part of all build alternatives.

The main span of the bridge would be rehabilitated, with the bridge remaining in its current configuration with 7 travel lanes and the movable barrier. It should also be noted that half of the bridge (the trestle section) would have to be entirely replaced. When completed, however, this alternative would result in ongoing high maintenance costs, traffic disruptions and traffic safety issues. For example, there are currently no shoulders on the bridge for motorists to safely pull out of traffic.

For the major build alternatives, 3, 4A, 4B, and 4C, there are common highway improvements being considered for all. These include:
  • High occupancy toll, or HOT lanes, across Rockland County and over a replacement bridge. These HOT lanes are primarily for buses and high occupancy vehicles. Single occupancy vehicles would be allowed into the lanes on a dynamic toll basis, that is, a toll that increases as traffic congestion increases.
  • Rockland County is characterized by steep grades (3 to 4%) that affect the movement of traffic and also how rail transit would be implemented in the corridor. Thus, we are studying possible westbound and eastbound climbing lanes.
  • Finally, a possible lane extension near Suffern is being considered to balance the lane configuration on the Thruway.

There are also common replacement bridge concepts for Alternatives 3, 4A, 4B and 4C. A replacement bridge would be constructed just north of the existing bridge. However, it is most important to note that the replacement bridge touches down in Nyack and Tarrytown in the same locations as the existing bridge. As shown in the enlargements, the dashed lines show the existing right-of-way for the bridge and Thruway. The replacement bridge touches down within the existing right-of-way.

Alternative 3 is Full-Corridor Bus Rapid Transit, or BRT. It includes the HOT lanes and climbing lanes in Rockland and a replacement bridge as just described. Buses would use the HOT lanes in Rockland and over the bridge, keeping out of mixed traffic. In Westchester County, the buses would use exclusive bus lanes, largely on existing streets such Route 119, local streets in White Plains, and Westchester Avenue. These lanes could be used by existing bus services such as the (Westchester County) Bee-Line System, which would be a major benefit to bus users.

Alternative 4A is the first of three alternatives involving commuter rail transit, or CRT. It would include the previously described highway improvements in Rockland County and a replacement bridge. From the transit perspective, it offers full-corridor CRT from Suffern to Port Chester with direct connections or transfers to the Port Jervis, Hudson, Harlem, New Haven lines and possibly to the Pascack Valley Line. There would be 9 or 10 new stations along the corridor, including a major station in Tarrytown, called the Tappan Zee Station. This alternative would offer a one-seat ride for passengers from Rockland and Orange Counties across the corridor to Stamford and also to New York City.

Alternative 4B differs from 4A in the type of transit service across Westchester County. It includes the previously described highway improvements, a replacement bridge, and direct rail connection to the Hudson Line for a one-seat ride to New York City. In Westchester, the transit mode would be light rail, or LRT. This service would start at the existing Tarrytown Station, connect to the new Tappan Zee transfer station, and then continue across the county. It would be primarily in its own right-of-way along Route 119 and Westchester Avenue, and in White Plains it would be on local streets.

Alternative 4C includes the previously described highway improvements, a replacement bridge, and direct rail connection to the Hudson Line for a one-seat ride to New York City. However, in Westchester, the transit mode would be bus rapid transit, generally following the bus routes described in Alternative 3.

some old stuff from 2013

New Jersey Transit Ridership Trends Illustrate the Need for More Transit Funding


Click the Map for the Details







Ridership gains were made across transit modes:

Rail

• Average monthly rail passenger trips were at 6.2 million, the highest in two years. Rail also saw its largest quarterly growth in two years (6.1 percent).
• Saturday passenger trips saw the most substantial increase of 13.6 percent when compared to the same period last year.
• Passenger trips to and from New York Penn Station grew by 7.8 percent.

Bus

• Bus ridership increased 4 percent during the first quarter of FY2013 compared with the same period the previous year.
• Sunday passenger trips saw the most substantial increase of 16.3 percent when compared to the same period last year.

The ongoing challenge for NJ Transit is how to address increased transit demand within funding constraints. NJT’s operating expenses outpace operating revenues forcing the agency to transfer dollars from its capital budget to meet its operating needs. This is an unsustainable funding scheme that makes it difficult for NJ Transit to plan for the years of growth ahead. Legislators must find new funding solutions to help ensure NJ Transit can keep pace with the rising demand.

Clarkstown aims to create transit village in Nanuet


Clarkstown is studying the idea of relocating the Nanuet train station closer to the hamlet's business district and new shopping mall.

Khurram Saeed, [email protected] 12:02 p.m. EST January 16, 2015

Clarkstown is studying the idea of relocating the Nanuet train station closer to the hamlet's business district and new shopping mall.

At the very least, officials say the station — currently little more than a platform and heated shelter — needs to be overhauled, such as adding a coffee shop or eatery, to take full advantage of its prime location while helping to transform Nanuet into a quaint transit village.

Bound Brook to renovate train station platform, waiting room, report says


By Dave Hutchinson | NJ Advance Media for NJ.com
on March 13, 2015 at 11:15 AM, updated March 13, 2015 at 3:30 PM

BOUND BROOK — In January, nighttime one-seat rides to New York started on the Raritan Valley Line.

As a result, many municipalities with train stations are looking to use the one-seat ride as a catalyst for downtown redevelopment plans, including Bound Brook, which is looking to upgrade the eastbound platform of its train station, according to a report on mycentraljersey.

The project would also include reopening the historic 100-by-50-foot brick building as a waiting room -- train passengers currently must wait outside -- and the restoration of a staircase from South Main Street by the rotary.
