Project Outcomes

When you know project’s outcomes, you are closer to winning. And by having this knowledge, your business is primed to present accordingly to SEPTA evaluators why your business is the perfect candidate.

SEPTA’s King of Prussia (KOP) rail is part of the Federal Transit Administration’s Capital Investment Grants (CIG) program. Recently, it has made the decision to continue the design and construction of a nearly four (4)-mile extension of the existing Norristown High Speed Line (NHSL) into King of Prussia. This extension gives passengers frequent and reliable transit services. Moreover, the line connects the three (3) largest employment hubs in the region: Center City, University City, and King of Prussia, in a total of 45 minutes.

In summary, the total area and coverage serves passengers traveling the King of Prussia-Valley Forge area in Upper Merion Township, Montgomery County, Pennsylvania. This is about 15 miles outside of Philadelphia.
