SEPTA Still Pushing Rail Line Extension

Although it lacks funding for the project, the Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority said it remains committed to an extension of the Norristown High Speed Line.

The $2 billion project would extend the route to King of Prussia, Pennsylvania.

SEPTA officials reviewed plans for the route and stations at an online public hearing held this week.

They said the 4-mile extension could go into operation between 2025 and 2027, but only if it gets full funding.

That prospect is uncertain amid budgetary constrains triggered by the COVID-19 pandemic, which has sent ridership plunging as more people work from home and/or curtail their travel.
