The Port Authority of New York & New Jersey recently approved nearly $500 million for early phase projects of Newark Airport’s $2.3 billion Terminal A Redevelopment. This includes $75M for foundation work on new terminal frontage to accommodate a future AirTrain alignment. Construction is slated to start in 2018.
RSG played a critical role in the planning for this major AirTrain construction project. We led a large data collection, analysis, and forecasting effort which informed decisions on whether to replace and enhance AirTrain infrastructure (or implement another mode like bus service) and how to design the infrastructure, train features, and services to meet future ridership demand.
