The Glassboro-Camden Line Project Team will hold a public informational meeting on Monday, May 20, 2013 at the Woodbury Jr/Sr High School located at 25 North Broad Street, Woodbury, NJ 08096.

An Alternatives Analysis (AA) study completed in 2009 recommended Light Rail from Glassboro to Camden as the preferred option for transit expansion in Southern New Jersey. Delaware River Port Authority (DRPA) / Port Authority Transit Corporation (PATCO), and New Jersey Transit (NJ TRANSIT), in cooperation with the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) are progressing the Glassboro-Camden Line (GCL) Project in southern New Jersey and continuing with the preparation of an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS). STV Incorporated is the consultant responsible for the preparation of the EIS. The purpose of this project is to improve transit service along the Glassboro to Camden corridor with a focus on increasing mobility and improving links between the established communities, jobs, and activity centers.
The EIS is required by the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) for a project to receive federal funding. The EIS process will take approximately 24 months, at which point the project can enter design and construction.
