Penn Station - Grand Central Connection

Hoboken Alternative
Routing the new Hudson River passenger rail tunnels by way of NJ Transit's Hoboken Terminal could significantly reduce the cost of constructing the ARC project while serving the Jersey City-Hoboken waterfront business district—the state's largest. Continuing on to Grand Central creates a multi-stop route through the region's largest business centers.
