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

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

Public transportation is going to become more and more necessary as population in urban areas continues to grow. Many people are without vehicular transportation, and for them it is absolutely crucial. For example, I have a daughter who is unable to drive. It also really matters to seniors. Now that regional rail is inexpensive due to my senior status, I would never think of driving into central Philadelphia, bucking traffic jams, time uncertainties, and parking issues. Making major points accessible by public transport is urgent! *And* extending a rail line along 422 would also be extremely beneficial. Greater ease for Ursinus students to go into the larger community would be one positive outcome. Allowing more people in outlying areas to get to central Philadelphia without driving would be another. I consider this a hugely important project.

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.
