Project Description

The new AirTrain will be a 2.5-mile elevated guideway train system and the centerpiece of the modernization of Newark Liberty International Airport. The new AirTrain will replace the Existing AirTrain, which opened in 1996 and is reaching the end of its useful life which makes it susceptible to more frequent breakdowns and delays. The new AirTrain will be designed to maximize customer convenience with seamless connections to other forms of transportation and provide modern wayfinding and amenities in AirTrain Stations and in Vehicles.


The TPOG JV team's relationship has been proven over time and remains one of the strongest in the industry. We share the Port Authority's commitment to using minority- and women-owned business enterprises (MBE/WBEs), service-disabled veteran owned business enterprises (SDVOB), and local workforce and business enterprises (LBE).

We are committed to maximizing participation, promoting equal opportunity and nondiscrimination, and providing significant economic and contracting opportunities.

The AirTrain Newark Replacement Program – Guideway and Stations Project has the following established goals: 20% MBE, 10% WBE, 3% SDVOB, 10% LBE.  It is the commitment of the TPOG JV team to maximize the opportunities for MBE/WBE/SDVOB/LBE Firms and provide fair and representative employment opportunities for all.
