PENNSAUKEN The new $40 million train station in Pennsauken is slated to open next month to link the River Line and the Atlantic City line.
The multilevel Pennsauken Transit Center, near Derousse Avenue west of River Road, will allow direct transfers between trains on the east-west Atlantic City Rail Line and the north-south River Line.
Pennsauken Township Manager Ed Grochowski said Oct. 13 "is the date we're being told," although NJ Transit spokesman John Durso Jr. said Monday that "we have not finalized rail schedules, and a start date has not yet been finalized."
The New Jersey Association of Rail Passengers also announced Oct. 13 as the station's opening date in its monthly newsletter. Local artist J. Kenneth Leap, who created glass-encased art for the station facade, said the opening is scheduled for Oct. 14, the Columbus Day holiday.
