The Newark–Elizabeth Rail Link (NERL) is a New Jersey Transit proposed 8.8-mile (14.2 km)-long light rail line in New Jersey, which would connect the downtown areas of Newark and Elizabeth with Newark Liberty International Airport. The construction of the project was being planned in stages, or "minimum operable segments" (MOS).
The second segment (MOS-2) would have connected Penn Station with the airport, while the third segment became known as the Union County Light Rail.
New Jersey Transit cited the project in its 2016 Capital Improvement Program without any specific allocation.
