With $500,000 from the Multimodal Transportation Program in March 2019 and $424,900 from PennDOT’s Aviation Transportation Assistance Program, Aviation Development Program and the Multimodal Fund in August 2019, PHL received a total $924,900 to rehabilitate platforms and canopies, as well as other necessary structural and aesthetic upgrades at four SEPTA Airport Line stops. Work is anticipated to begin May 2020.
“Our Airport serves more than 32 million passengers annually,” said Rochelle “Chellie” Cameron, CEO, PHL. “With departures to and from Center City every 30 minutes, SEPTA’s Airport Line provides those visitors and airline crews flying in and out of PHL with a convenient travel option to Philadelphia and the surrounding region. The rail line’s connection to many other SEPTA services, makes the train a vital transportation necessity for many of the 21,000 airport employees.”
SEPTA’s Airport Line serves 2.1 million annual trips to and from PHL, with access to all terminals, including platforms at Terminal A, B, C/D and E/F.
“SEPTA and Philadelphia’s Division of Aviation have a vested interest in supporting and, when necessary, collaborating on, multimodal projects that help move our shared passengers to points across the Delaware Valley,” said Jeffrey D. Knueppel, general manager, SEPTA. “The proposed work at the Airport Line stops will create an enhanced transit gateway for residents and visitors traveling to and from PHL.”
