Watch the Scranton-Poconos-NYC Passenger Rail Rally Replay

The dream of passenger rail service connecting Scranton, the Poconos, and New York City is moving along the tracks closer to becoming a reality! The route was recently accepted into the Corridor ID Program, and the Federal Railroad Administration will be providing $500,000 in funding towards the proposed line.

The Pocono Mountains Visitors Bureau, joined by partners in the Pocono Chamber of Commerce, the Greater Scranton Chamber of Commerce, the NEPA Alliance, the Scranton Rail Restoration Coalition, and Kalahari Resorts & Conventions, hosted a public rail rally on Tuesday, December 19, 2023 at 6 p.m. at Kalahari Resorts & Conventions , with officials including Congressman Matt Cartwright in attendance to discuss the next steps of the proposed rail line to connect Scranton, Mount Pocono, East Stroudsburg, and New York City.
