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.

KOP needs a connection to Philadelphia (and beyond) [via public transportation] to allow our businesses to continue to grow. We need the ability to recruit from the broadest talent pool, the ability to more easily go see clients (or have them come see us) and the ability to more easily enjoy entertainment, dining, etc. in Philadelphia. The project [KOP Rail Extension] is 30 years overdue. Don’t let it become 40 years overdue.

What a wonderful opportunity for folks to visit the King of Prussia area. With traffic filling the streets, public transportation has a great opportunity to help those visiting our area.

I am a practicing chiropractic neurologist of thirty-three years in King of Prussia, located at one of the proposed stops for KOP Rail [adjacent to the Valley Forge Casino]. I strongly endorse the implementation of this project [KOP Rail], because it will allow patients without cars and whom travel from as far as Philadelphia and Norristown to have access to my office for their care. Please start construction as soon as possible.

Dr. Mark Saracino

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

Julia F.

I heartily support this important move forward for King of Prussia and the region. KOP Rail will improve accessibility to residential, hotel, retail and dining resources, and provide the missing “last link” long needed to fully connect the western suburbs.
