Geographic Area Covered: Phoenixville in Chester County, and Norristown, Valley Forge, Royersford, and Pottstown in Montgomery County

Abstract: This study estimated the ridership for a proposed service extension of the existing Manayunk/Norristown Regional Rail line from the Norristown Transportation Center to Pottstown via Phoenixville. Two types of service were modeled, shuttle service between Pottstown and Norristown and through service between Pottstown and Philadelphia. It was projected that the new stations and the Norristown Transportation Center are expected to serve approximately 2,000 to 3,000 regional rail riders per day by 2030. It would fill in the commuter rail gap, enhance access to employment and other destinations, reduce auto dependency, improve quality of life, and support smart growth and revitalization effort.

Key Words: Passenger Rail Extension, SEPTA Regional Rail, Ridership Forecast, Travel Demand Model, Origin and Destination Pattern, Manayunk/Norristown Line, Historic Towns, Revitalization, Livability, Sustainability
