The Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation will receive a Transit-Oriented Development grant issued in a pilot program being overseen by the Federal Transit Administration.

The $360,000 award will used for planning of five stations on the proposed 4-mile King of Prussia rail extension of the Norristown High Speed Line.

The grant is part of $6.2 million in funding awarded by the FTA this week in support of nine planning efforts aimed at improving access to public transportation, including rail.

The projects are expected to improve access, encourage ridership and spur economic and mixed-use development near public transit services.
