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.

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 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.

I have been an employee in King of Prussia and commuting from Philadelphia for 5+ years. This rail line would enhance the job talent in the market, promoting employees in the city to further their careers by working for companies they have never considered before. I want to see King of Prussia competitive in all markets!

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.
