SEPTA Regional Rail resumes a normal schedule starting on Monday, October 3 after a substantial number of Silverliner V cars are now back in operation.
The KOP Rail Coalition endorses the PECO/TURNPIKE/FIRST AVENUE route and believes that it will drive the most economic development benefit, create the most number of new jobs, access the largest number of existing jobs, all while minimizing visual and physical impacts on adjacent property owners.
PennDOT Secretary Leslie S. Richards on Tuesday announced a long-range, comprehensive, multi-modal transportation management plan designed to enhance travel along the Interstate 76 (Schuylkill Expressway) Corridor between King of Prussia and Philadelphia. The plan includes expanded public transit, improved traffic management on I-76 and local roads, and potential trail improvements.
“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.”
– Robert Hart, General Manager
Simon Property Group, King of Prussia Mall
“While many of our graduates have their own transportation and have jobs in the KOP business district, so many others, particularly students seeking internships cannot access these opportunities. We wholeheartedly support the extension of the NHSL into King of Prussia.”
-Carlotta Daniels-Randolf, Executive Director

“King of Prussia District strongly endorses SEPTA’s King of Prussia Rail Extension Project. This critical infrastructure investment will provide a much needed alternate mode of travel to the largest employment and commercial center in the suburban Philadelphia region”
-Eric Goldstein, Executive Director
King of Prussia District
“I fully support the decision to extend the rail line. I want KOP accessible to those who don’t have cars, and I also would be happy if the traffic congestion were to lessen in my hometown.”
– Dennis B.
