Hudson-Bergen Light Rail Transit System

Client:New Jersey Transit
 Newark, NJ

This project was the nation's first transit Design-Build-Operate-Maintain (DBOM) system, with revenue service beginning in April, 2000. The system serves the most densely populated portion of New Jersey. Interactive Elements contributed to the project from the earliest stages of the procurement, assisting in the preparation of the successful proposal; developing specifications and work plans that fulfilled the requested scope of work; and implementing its portion of work in four critical areas: rail operations planning, system safety and safety training, inspection of track, and community outreach. The initial 16 station, 9.5 mile segment served 100,000 daily riders by 2010. The project was built by the 21st Century Rail Corporation, a consortium led by Raytheon (now Washington Group). Interactive Elements continued its role during operations, including providing the Chief of Staff for the CEO.   [563]
