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 strongly support investing in multi-modal transportation efforts like the Norristown High Speed Line extension and theconnector. Efforts like these, if done right, are critical to long-term economic vitality and job growth in the region.

State Representative Tim Briggs • Member, State Transportation Committee

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.

Jaquelin C.

I would like to have a direct and time effective mass transit option to commute to work.

When talking about return on investment (ROI), it’s hard to make a better case for public investment than King of Prussia Rail. The line would link major areas of growth in the region while alleviating serious and worsening traffic conditions in Upper and Lower Merion as well as all along the I-76 corridor. As a Lower Merion resident who drives to KOP and uses the Norristown High Speed Line, I can vouch for the positive effect this rail extension will have for communities outside of Upper Merion.

James S.

This would be SUCH a benefit to all of us that have to drive the turnpike each day. In addition to savings in gas and wear and tear on our cars, it would benefit all of us emotionally to be able to ride the train again. Our company left Center City where I worked at 2000 Market St. for 8 years, and took the train every day. Now I have to drive each day and it can be very stressful. I can only imagine the benefit to all the businesses around this area that would benefit from a project like this. I am very much for this project.
