SEPTA continues to study a proposed rail extension that would run four to five miles from Norristown to King of Prussia and have eight to 10 stops. The estimated $1 billion to $1.2 billion project remains in the planning stages but is gaining momentum and interest. SEPTA is in the middle of a draft environmental impact statement as well as looking at different alignments for the rail line and their impact on the environment. Funding is also being pursued.
The KOP Rail Coalition believes that the King of Prussia rail is a convenient and reliable way to connect people to opportunity and that it is essential to support evolving needs in our community.

“I endorse the King of Prussia Rail Extension project. There are over 7,500 employees who work at King of Prussia Mall as well as 20 million 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.”
