Traffic in King of Prussia is frequently a nightmare and with growing sections of KOP, it is very difficult going from the mall, to the movie theater, to the new west development. A rail would make every visitor’s day much easier!

If the KOP Rail Line became a reality, I can honestly see my quality of life improving. The amount of time I spend in traffic is stressing me out, taking time away from the things in life I care about, and polluting the air. Coworkers have left our company because the commute is too intense, and I know it’s only going to get worse. Help fulfill the promise Philly and it’s suburbs have, by linking together these two great parts of our region. This move could truly elevate Philly to a world class city.

I travel from south Philadelphia to King of Prussia 5 days out of the week, this would help big time!

I am a store director for a retailer in the King of Prussia Mall for years and having a rail system here to Philly would be a game-changer for the area in many ways. It would alleviate traffic on 76 which is a nightmare for commuters and makes it difficult for my employees to get to work. Also in my opinion this would grow business in the mall and the area if people could easily commute via rail. I am so excited at the chance this could come to fruition.

As a 40-year resident of King of Prussia, I’ve watched the area grow from a typical suburb into a huge economic and business community. At the same time, I’ve seen its transportation network become strained to the breaking point by road-centered development so I welcome the NHSL extension project as a LONG-overdue improvement.

Jeff K.

I fully support this project to bring needed transportation alternatives to these areas of King of Prussia, and I think this route provides the best coverage with the fewest adverse impacts on the adjacent community.
