Trenton Stations
Three stations are planned for Trenton. They are at Cass Street, serving Waterfront Park, home of the Trenton Thunder, Hamilton Avenut, serving the Sovereign Bank Arena, and Clinton Avenue, serving the Northeast Corridor Station. Connections can be made for Amtrak, New Jersey Transit, and SEPTA trains serving points north and south. Additionally, there are three proposed Trenton Stations.
Clinton and Wallenberg Avenues Clinton and Wallenberg Avenues is the location of the northern terminus of the Light Rail Line, at least in the first phase. This location offers connection to SEPTA, New Jersey Transit and Amtrak.
Parking available 120 Parking spaces will be available for light rail travelers. Parking is at a premium in this area, due to the NEC station as well as offices located in the area, but there are more than 3,400 parking spaces in the immediate area.

Now being converted for alternate use, there are several former factory buildings that now house offices. Others have been converted for retail use. The building in this picture is advertised as the new home of the YMCA. A soccer stadium and a convention/exhibition center have also been proposed for the same site.
