Raritan Valley Line

Bridgewater is a New Jersey Transit railroad station on the Raritan Valley Line, in Bridgewater, New Jersey. The station sits on the site of the former "Calco" station that served American Cyanamid prior to its closure. It was reconstructed in 1999 in conjunction with the construction of TD Bank Ballpark, and the ballpark's White Lot is used for station parking. The station has two short side platforms that can only berth two cars. The station house (on the eastbound side) only contains some benches, maps, and heaters. Ticket vending machines were installed on the inbound platform in June 2011. The station is not ADA accessible at this time. The parking lot will be under new management WLABT LLC. (Somerset Patriots) at $4 daily and $150 quarterly as of June 1, 2009. Somerset Patriots fans will continue to pay $2 per game.

Bridgewater station is proposed to be turned into the last stop on New Jersey Transit's proposed revival of the West Trenton Line. West Trenton Trains will run southwest from here to the West Trenton SEPTA station in Ewing, and continue east along the Raritan Valley Line to its terminus at Penn Station in Newark.
