Downingtown's new train station will provide ADA accessibility, accommodate growing ridership, and anchor station-area redevelopment.
A new station location is necessary because the current station site is located on a slight curve of the track and cannot feasibly be modified to accommodate ADA access requirements. Potential station locations are being evaluated.
Environmental clearances were received in September 2016 and conceptual design is underway. An updated Traffic Impact Analysis began in mid-2017.
PennDOT is leading the project with additional funding by the Federal Transit Administration.
