Description:
  Abstract:  Line data delineating right-of-way centerlines for rail, light rail, and subway service lines operated by NJ TRANSIT, and connecting commuter lines operated by Port Authority Trans Hudson (PATH) and Port Authority Transit Corporation (PATCO). Data set is in shapefile format (Esri).
  Purpose:  Provides location and attribute information for currently operated regional rail service. Data set is intended only for general planning and mapping use. Single lines represent approximate right-of-way centerlines, not track centerlines.
  Supplemental Information:  This shapefile does not include linear referencing m values. Most of the lines were heads-up digitized from New Jersey 2007 High Resolution Orthophotography, which has a 1 foot pixel size and tested accuracy of +/- 4 feet. Some of the lines were derived from other sources. These data are re-published by NJ Office of Information Technology (NJOIT), Office of Geographic Information Systems (OGIS) under agreement with NJ TRANSIT - GIS-Transportation.The SEPTA Trenton Line is included (it connects with NJ TRANSIT Northeast Corridor line), but SEPTA West Trenton Line is not.
