Background

Paoli Station is located at East Lancaster Pike and North Valley Road in Tredyffrin Township, Chester County. The station serves Amtrak trains and SEPTA regional rail (Paoli/Thorndale Line) as well as city and regional buses. The one-story brick building was constructed by the Pennsylvania Railroad in 1953, replacing an 1893 depot. It offers a small indoor waiting area with benches, a coffee shop, ticket office, and bike racks. An expanded intermodal transportation facility is being developed to meet the needs of commuters and other passengers in the heavily-developed area and strengthen downtown Paoli economic development efforts. Work is being pursued in three phases, with the most urgent accessibility updates being addressed first to bring the station into ADA compliance.
