Easton joins Allentown in backing rail transit authority

Easton City Council Wednesday night got on board a growing movement in the Lehigh Valley to form a Rail Transit Authority that would back railroad service from Easton to New York City, along with service from Allentown to trains running into Philadelphia.

Council, in a unanimous vote, supported the creation of the Rail Transit Authority, known as “Suburban-Metro Area Rail Transit, Lehigh Valley.”
