The map nexis posted makes it seem ridiculous that Merchantville is trying to merge with Cherry Hill rather than Pennsauken (without taking demographics into account).

Glassboro-Camden light-rail plan hits a snag

Quote:
A proposed $1.6 billion light-rail line between Glassboro and Camden has hit a significant roadblock: The Federal Transit Administration will not proceed with a required environmental study because the planned rail line has no owner or operator.

Without a completed environmental study, the 18-mile line cannot be built.

"Unfortunately, because you have not identified a project sponsor who can accept the responsibility for commitments in the environmental impact statement, and ultimately operate and construct the project, we cannot move ahead with the environmental document," the FTA's regional administrator in Philadelphia, Brigid Hynes-Cherin, wrote to John Hanson, chief executive of the Delaware River Port Authority.

The letter, dated July 29, was released by the DRPA on Tuesday following a request from The Inquirer....

State Senate President Stephen Sweeney, the Gloucester County Democrat who has championed the rail line, said Tuesday the FTA action would not stop the line.

"It's going to get done," Sweeney said. "We're working to have NJTransit take the lead."

Sweeney said money for the line would be included in a renewed state Transportation Trust Fund, when the Legislature figures out a way to replenish that fund.
This is definitely a setback for mass transit progress in South Jersey. It's a shame and embarrassing that NJ Transit can even step up and run a rail line in its own state. No wonder why some many people across the country laugh at this state. I can't blame them.
