I live in Phoenixville and work in center city Philadelphia. My commute can take over 2 hours with traffic some days. The proposed railway would improve my commute and allow my husband and I to continue to live in such a great area.

I feel like this [KOP Rail] would help the community greatly! A lot of people can utilize rail for going to and from work, as well as coming to different communities for shopping and helping local economies.

I grew up near King of Prussia and started my professional life commuting into Center City. The only option was the bus, which is an unreliable mode of transport in winter and slow in heavy traffic. Rail is THE way to go to sustain the growth of the region economically.
