theconnector schedule has been slightly modified to reflect changes made the the SEPTA Regional Rail Schedule. Changes are in effect as of Monday, September 11, 2017.
The extension will provide a convenient, reliable, and efficient transit service to destinations throughout the region, and provide improved access for communities along the current line. All stations will be fully compliant with the Americans with Disability (ADA) Act, and the project will support increased walkability in Upper Merion Township, as well as help reduce overall travel times. Once complete, the project will promote and strengthen regional growth, and support multimodal transportation improvements (such as sidewalks, crosswalks and bike lanes) for residents, commuters, shoppers, students and visitors.
Since its inception in June 2013, theconnector commuter shuttle service has provided over 50,000 rides to employees looking for a safe and reliable alternative to driving to work in KOP. In April 2017, KOP-BID conducted a ridership survey to gain valuable insight about the service to increase efficiencies and use.
The results proved that theconnector is an important transportation alternative to hundreds working in KOP.
“I endorse the King of Prussia Rail project. There are over 7,500 employees who work at King of Prussia Mall as well as 20M visitors who frequent the mall each year. The rail extension would reduce travel time for both employees and customers as well as reduce congestion in the area.”

“While many of our graduates have their own transportation and have jobs in King of Prussia, so many others, particularly students seeking internships cannot access these opportunities. We wholeheartedly support the extension of the NHSL into King of Prussia.”

“I heartily support this important move forward for King of Prussia and the region. The KOP Rail project will improve accessibility to residential, hotel, retail and dining resources, and provide the missing “last link” long needed to fully connect the western suburbs.”
