Service to Scranton came a step closer, when the Federal Transit Administration issued a Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) for the Scranton project.  This clears the way for further engineering work, before construction contracts are awarded.  Political leaders and rail advocates in New York State are also expressing interest in the extension of service to Binghamton and beyond.  The affected lines were once part of the Lackawanna Railroad, and the Lackawanna Coalition supports the proposed extension of service.
