Spinola to argue for 7-line extension to New Jersey

City anticipates 38 percent growth in demand for transit between New York, New Jersey by 2030

The Real Estate Board of New York is looking to push the extension of the No. 7 subway line into New Jersey. On Thursday, REBNY President Steven Spinola was expected to testify before the Metropolitan Transportation Authority’s reinvention commission to make his case.

The city anticipates a 38 percent growth in demand for transit between New York and New Jersey by 2030.

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie killed the Access to the Region’s Core — or ARC — tunnel in 2010, the MTA began investigating the option of extending the no. 7 train to from 11th Avenue to Secaucus.

In 2013, the city released a study that the extension was “physically and operationally feasible.” [Capital NY]
