Abstract: The King of Prussia Rail (KOP Rail) project is a proposed extension of SEPTA’s Norristown High Speed Line to the King of Prussia area of Upper Merion Township in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania. Providing safe and convenient nonmotorized access to KOP Rail stations is one of the best and most cost-effective ways to maximize the overall usefulness of this transit investment and create value for Upper Merion Township residents, employees, and visitors. This study was designed to identify and evaluate a variety of factors that influence the environment for walking and biking in each station area. Based on these existing conditions and input from KOP Rail stakeholders, the study team developed a series of recommendations and identified a number of opportunities to enhance and extend the network of nonmotorized transportation infrastructure and create a more transit-supportive built environment.
