New Meadowlands Rail Line Opening
The first train arriving at the Meadowlands Rail Station- July 20th, 2009.
Governor Jon S. Corzine inaugurated new rail service to the Meadowlands Sports Complex today, launching an era of travel convenience for the millions of New Jersey residents and visitors who attend year-round events at the Meadowlands.
Dozens of officials and guests, including players from the New York Jets and New York Giants, joined the Governor for the train ride, which originated in Hoboken and finished with a ribbon-cutting ceremony at the new Meadowlands Station.
"NJ TRANSIT rail service, with its ability to move thousands of people in a safe and efficient manner, is a natural fit for one of New Jersey's premiere spectator sport and concert locations," Governor Corzine said. "This line will play an increasingly important role in the development of green transportation practices by helping fans avoid traffic congestion, resulting in fewer cars on our roadways and reduced emissions."
The new line gives customers statewide rail access to the Meadowlands from 11 of 12 NJ TRANSIT rail lines. Frank R. Lautenberg Station at Secaucus Junction, the new line's only stop between Hoboken and the Meadowlands, provides the connection.
