One of the long-standing complaints of light rail riders, lack of a place to sit, is being alleviated as longer five-car trains with a new extended car are starting to enter service.Pictures and more article:
The extended car is being added to the center of 10 Newark Light Rail-City Subway trains and 25 Hudson-Bergen Light Rail trains as part of a $54 million project, with 80 percent of that coming from the federal clean air and congestion management funds.
NJ Transit Executive Director Stephen Santoro rode one of the trains and toured the Newark Light Rail-City Subway maintenance shop on Thursday to thank workers who've been assembling trains with the extended sections. The extended sections increase seating capacity by 50 percent, from 68 seats to 102 seats, he said.
