Scranton (NJT station)
Scranton is the proposed terminus for New Jersey Transit (NJ Transit) passenger rail service from New York City and Hoboken, New Jersey, via the Lackawanna Cut-Off to Scranton, Pennsylvania. Currently, NJ Transit provides rail service to Port Morris, New Jersey via the Lake Hopatcong station. The proposal is to extend this service to Andover, New Jersey in Phase I; to Blairstown, New Jersey or Analomink, Pennsylvania in Phase II; and to Scranton in Phase III. Depending on funding, these phases might be consecutive or concurrent.
The Scranton terminus will be a regional station near Steamtown. A new station would be built on Lackawanna Avenue along the northernmost track east of Bridge 60 (the railroad bridge over the Lackawanna River) and the Cliff Street underpass. For parking, the station will use about 30 spots in Steamtown's existing lot.
