New Jersey transit riders will get the chance to sound off on the agency's plan to refurbish Newark Penn Station for the first time Tuesday.

NEWARK, New Jersey (WABC) -- New Jersey transit riders will get the chance to sound off on the agency's plan to refurbish Newark Penn Station for the first time.

The first of three public hearings was held Tuesday afternoon.

The transit agency is spending $190 million to refurbish the 86-year-old station.

It will include updated amenities, pedestrian spaces, and infrastructure improvements.

Anyone who wishes to participate in the virtual public hearing can register at the New Jersey Transit Agency's website.

This comes after the MTA unveiled a portion of raised ceilings inside the corridors of New York's Penn Station.

The improvements are part of a larger effort to redesign the transit hub and surrounding area.
