The Southeastern Pennsylvania Transit Authority (SEPTA) earlier this week completed reconstruction of the Exton Station on the Paoli/Thorndale regional rail line in Exton, Pennsylvania. 

The station is now fully accessible according to Americans with Disabilities Act standards, SEPTA officials said in a press release.

The station includes high-level platforms for accessible boarding, new ramps and stairs, a new station building and waiting area, a SEPTA Key payment system, covered bicycle parking, an extended parking lot, and updated lighting and signage.

The $27 million reconstruction project received funding from the Federal Transit Administration and Pennsylvania’s Act 89 of 2013, which supports transportation infrastructure improvement projects.

The station improvements were made as part of a settlement with Disability Rights Pennsylvania, a group that sued Amtrak over the lack of handicap access at the Paoli and Exton stations in 2014, a local newspaper reported.

Exton Station serves Amtrak’s Keystone Service.
