The Glassboro-Camden Line (GCL) is a proposed 18-mile passenger rail line between Glassboro & Camden in South Jersey. The line restores passenger rail service along an existing rail line traversing Gloucester & Camden counties. The GCL will improve transit service along the Glassboro to Camden corridor with a focus on increasing mobility and improving links between the established communities, jobs, and activity centers.
