NJT wants to increase capacity between Secaucus Junction and the Meadowlands Complex, with a goal of moving 20,000 customers an hour following major events at MetLife Stadium. On a daily basis at peak hours of operation, NJT anticipates needing to move up to 6,000 American Dream customers and employees per hour.

They've issued an RFP for this but it doesn't seem to be available online at the moment.

>>>". While the Meadowlandsto Secaucus route is the minimum operating segment of the new route for the purposes of this challenge, we also welcome scalable solutions that can be expanded to serve adjacent communities with direct access to Secaucus Junction"<<< This is said in a press report on this initiative: "Diane Gutierrez-Scaccetti, NJ Transit's board chair and commissioner of the state Transportation Department . . . said . . . . It addresses moving people to and from the complex, but it also has the potential to expand through Jersey City and as far west as Montclair." https://www.northjersey.com/story/news/ ... 798384002/
