Transportation is the backbone of the region’s economy, and is essential to the quality of life for all residents. The tri-state region can support sustainable and equitable economic growth for future generations by transforming its commuter rail network. Strategic investments can combine the region’s rail lines, Long Island Railroad, Metro-North, and NJ Transit, into a unified system called Trans-Regional Express (T-REX) that would vastly improve commuter mobility. T-REX would address immediate priorities, such as relieving congestion at Penn Station, while incrementally expanding the network; ultimately creating a modern regional rail system that could serve the tri-state area for a century or more.
Join us for a presentation on the T-REX system featuring Tom Wright, President & CEO of Regional Plan Association, with a conversation moderated by Sarah M. Kaufman, Associate Director of the NYU Rudin Center for Transportation.Buy tickets/get more info now
