Bring Back Passenger Trains

Reinstating passenger rail in the Lehigh Valley will help reduce traffic on the I-78 corridor and surrounding highways, thus improving highway safety and decreasing traffic deaths, reducing automobile emissions, bringing business to the the Lehigh Valley’s burgeoning entertainment industry (Phantoms hockey, Bethlehem Events Center, etc.), and provide easier commuting to and from New York and Philadelphia for all purposes.  Please support SMART (Suburban-Metro Area Rail Transit) Lehigh Valley in bringing passenger rail back to The Lehigh Valley!”  More information can be found at their and on their Facebook page!
