Hudson-Bergen Light Rail

The Hudson-Bergen Light Rail currently serves Hudson County, New Jersey, just outside New York City. The initial segment of the system opened on 22 April 2000 and connected the Harborside Financial Center stop in Jersey City with the West Side Avenue stop, also in Jersey City, and with the 34th Street stop in Bayonne. The system has now been extended to serve Pavonia-Newport, where there is a PATH station and a large shopping mall; Hoboken Terminal, with a PATH station and access to NJ Transit commuter rail; and all the way north to the Tonnelle Avenue terminal in North Bergen (which confusingly is still Hudson County; HBLR has yet to reach Bergen County).

The system has three lines, which I'll refer to as Blue, Green and Yellow after the way they are shown on the map, although no one ever actually calls them that. The Blue Line connects Bayonne with Hoboken Terminal; the Yellow Line connects West Side Avenue with Tonnelle Avenue; the Green Line connects Hoboken Terminal with Tonnelle Avenue.
