tempoPS250

Tune in to PBS Channel 39 this weekend to see Steven Bliss, Executive Director of RenewLV, featured on Tempo Public Square, discussing what is needed to establish a running regional rail service in the Lehigh Valley area. Some of the various issues examined during the program will include the estimated project costs, ridership projections, and benefits of rail service, as well as a discussion of implementation challenges.

With a growing population in the Lehigh Valley, the area is ripe for a regional rail network. Currently, RenewLV supports the study of rail service in the Lehigh Valley, examining the expansion of NJ Transit through to the Northampton and Lehigh Counties. This study serves as an important step towards creating rail service in the Lehigh Valley, which will provide travel options and increased economic opportunities.

Tempo PublicSquare: Regional Rail airs this Friday, June 19th, at 7:30 PM and 11PM, with a repeat showing on Sunday, June 21st, at 11:30AM, on PBS39, Channel 39.
