Middletown lobbies for SEPTA service


The Middletown, Pa., board of supervisors recently adopted two resolutions aimed at advancing the Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority’s (SEPTA) Fox Chase-Newtown commuter-rail project.

The first resolution supports a new regional feasibility study of the Fox Chase-Newtown commuter-rail corridor; the second supports the reactivation of the rail line upon completion of the feasibility study.

Middletown is the eighth municipality in the region that has passed resolutions calling on county planning commissions, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation and SEPTA to begin studying the “deficiencies in existing SEPTA rail service in the northern suburbs,” according to a prepared statement.
