Re: Political efforts to resurrect ''Bergen Loop'' to connect to Amtrak Gateway afoot

Posted by Joe V on Sat Apr 28 10:25:39 2012, in response to Political efforts to resurrect "Bergen Loop" to connect to Amtrak Gateway afoot, posted by Olog-hai on Sat Apr 28 04:44:49 2012.

Assuming the unlikely event that they get money for this, they would have to divide the pot of 13TPH between NWK and HOB Divisions. So they are in effect saying (which is also what I think) is that Gateway is a poor project for commuters if only for the NWK Division. It is a lever to get more FTA funding for what is basically an Amtrak project. Amtrak is not normally a part of FTA's jurisdiction.

The more Gateway morphs into ARC, the greater the likelihood it will also be killed.

This was obviously prompted by Lhota declaring #7 to SEC "not in anybody's lifetime", then throws in a diversionary tactic to send the #7 further south on West Side Hwy.
