NEW YORK — A Regional Plan Association report wants to merge Long Island Rail Road, Metro-North Railroad, and NJ Transit into a single train network that could take passengers from the Hudson Valley straight to Lower Manhattan, The Patch reports.

According to the report, the "Trans-Regional Express," or "T-REX," would connect the systems to greatly cut travel times and increase capacity on rail lines that will only see more strain as the area's population grows.

The network would be "one of the largest public works projects undertaken since the early 20th century" and would cost as much as $71.4 billion to build over 30 years. For the full story, click here.
