    In an early look at alternatives, the analysis shows that rail and light rail alternatives in the study corridor face significant barriers and high costs. NJ Transit reports enhanced Bus Rapid Transit (BRT), however, offers the benefits of light rail but with “more flexible implementation and lower costs.”

    NJ Transit is holding a third public open house on Thursday March 1 at Camden County College from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. to discuss the Alternatives Analysis process and the project schedule.
