SEPTA Opening First New Train Station in 20 Years
Montgomery County rail riders, rejoice! This Sunday, SEPTA is opening a new regional rail station. The Lansdale/Doylestown Line will begin operating on a new schedule this Sunday to accommodate the new 9th Street Lansdale Station.
“It is very exciting to be opening a new station, SEPTA’s first in nearly 20 years,” SEPTA General Manager Jeffrey D. Knueppel said. “We are inviting everyone in the area to come and try it.”
The station is a partnership between SEPTA, Lansdale Borough, Lansdale Parking Authority and Stoltz Property Management Group. Earlier this year, construction began on a $38 million parking garage behind the main Lansdale train station.
The new station features 78 parking spots, as well as 125 temporary spots while the garage is under construction. 9th Street Lansdale Station is at 141 W. 9th Street, between the Lansdale and Fortuna stops.
