The proposed route for a new light rail line was along the Hoboken waterfront. This button was used by opponents of that route who preferred that it be located on the west side of Hoboken (along an existing rail freight line right-of-way.) The Hoboken portion of the Hudson-Bergen Light Rail Line was built in that location.
