Regional Rail


Philadelphia has the best commuter rail infrastructure in North America. Our Regional Rail program will make investments that make Regional Rail more useful to more people, guided by the roadmap outlined in our upcoming Regional Rail Master Plan, Reimagining Regional Rail.

This program can transform mobility and opportunity for the region and reimagine the way Regional Rail serves Greater Philadelphia. The future of Regional Rail is frequent, all-day, and all-week.
