  • Stakeholder interviews and a three-day community workshop were held in 2011 to discuss potential station improvements in coordination with local transportation enhancement and community economic development efforts.
  • Ideas include:
    -- Construct a 500-foot-long high-level platform with lighted canopy
    -- Provide a ticket office and indoor waiting room with restrooms
    -- Bolster safety (e.g., lighting, platform surfaces) and security
    -- Improve accessibility to westbound platform, and overall ADA accessibility
    -- Expand parking
    -- Designate pick-up and drop-off areas
    -- Improve pedestrian and vehicular access
    -- Strengthen connections to the central business district
  • PennDOT plans to reexamine potential improvements as part of its long-term planning of the Keystone Line.
