How is this different than ARC? What lines would get a "transfer free" commute?

This wouldn't be a dead end station which was the ARC , the Raritan Valley , North Jersey Coast line and future MOM lines would be transfer free.

What about the existing lines passing through the Secaucus upper level (NEC, M&E)? Would they be able to use the new tunnel as well as the existing one?

BTW, I wouldn't get too excited about this... there's still three jurisdictions which could mess it up.

Yes they would be , NJT , Amtrak and the PA all seem to be for this , now all we need is political support which since this would benefit the suburbs shouldn't be too hard....and the 2 big wigs which seem to favor the 7 train extension which would benefit mostly developers... I do see this project being built sometime in the next 15 years.... Its a 4 in one project which is rare for this region...and it will be one of the last large projects in this region...

Guess all the crumbling infrastructure isn't so critical as money continues to be chronically and traditionally diverted.
