The Federal Transit Administration (FTA) has awarded NJ Transit a $592,000 grant to study equitable transit-oriented development (TOD) along the proposed nine-mile extension of the Hudson-Bergen Light Rail (HBLR) into Bergen County.

The comprehensive plan will build on efforts to establish neighborhoods and employment centers along the corridor and provide a framework for coordinated actions, creating a blueprint for success for all stakeholders.

The extension of the HBLR into Bergen County, known as the Northern Branch, will further NJ Transit’s 10-Year Strategic Plan goals of powering a stronger and fairer economy and promoting a more sustainable future.
