Hudson-Bergen Light Rail Transit 

The Hudson-Bergen light rail was the first major transit system in the country to be designed and constructed under a design-build-operate-maintain (DBOM) contract. As a subconsultant to the DBOM consortium, STV performed track alignments and engineering design for the line's bridges, stations and parking facilities, a vehicle maintenance facility, utilities and traffic signals. 

With 24 stations, the Hudson-Bergen Line connects the communities in the six moth densely populated county in the United States. The first segment of the system connected to Bayonne to Newport, NJ, with the second segment extending to Hoboken in Hudson County, opening two years later.
