Take a ride on KOP Rail

What's New?

SEPTA is pausing the King of Prussia Rail project following further review of rising costs, which have been exacerbated by inflation and high interest rates. The project is not recommended for federal New Starts funding in Fiscal Year 2024, and SEPTA will use resources that had been allocated for KOP Rail to bolster essential infrastructure work.

Growth and Opportunity

  • About
    Railway above park area

    SEPTA’s King of Prussia Rail Project (KOP Rail) will extend the existing Norristown High Speed Line (NHSL) 4 miles into King of Prussia (KOP), providing a high-speed, “one-seat” ride from any station along the NHSL, including the 69th Street Transportation Center in Upper Darby and the Norristown Transportation Center in Norristown.

    KOP Rail will connect Center City, University City, and KOP—the area’s three largest employment centers. Five stations are proposed along the route: one station and park-and-ride at Henderson Road; two stations north of KOP Mall; and two stations along Moore Park KOP (including a park-and-ride at the terminal station).

    The current phase is funded through a federal earmark. Partial funding is anticipated through the Federal Transit Administration’s New Starts program. A 20-year Financial Plan, currently in development, will consider a wide range of future funding options. This could include state, regional, or county funding, private investment and innovative finance options.
