Station Accessibility Program


SEPTA is investing more than $1 billion on making Metro and Regional Rail stations accessible over the next 12 years. As a result, more than 95% of trips on SEPTA will go through an accessible station. These investments make the system easier to use and more accessible for all, including seniors, anyone with mobility disabilities, and those with baby strollers or groceries.


SEPTA is investing more than $600 million to continue to focus on our commitment to make all stations on the Broad Street Line [B] and Market-Frankford Line [L] accessible within the next decade. Metro station improvements will mean that 99% of trips on Metro are through an accessible station by 2034. In recent years, SEPTA completed accessibility projects at 40th Street, 15th Street, and Arrott Transportation Center on the Market-Frankford Line [L]. Additional work is underway at Susquehanna-Dauphin Station on the Broad Street Line [B] and 30th Street Station serving both the Market-Frankford Line [L] and City Trolleys, while design work continues on improvements at Tasker-Morris Station on the Broad Street Line [B] and 11th Street Station on the Market-Frankford Line [L]. 

Stations are the front door to SEPTA’s Regional Rail system and form the foundation of an intuitive and seamless network. We are investing more than $450 million on continued efforts to modernize Regional Rail stations across our system to make them fully accessible and provide seamless connections to the rest of the SEPTA’s Metro and Bus network. This program will result in a 40% increase in accessible Regional Rail stations. In recent years, SEPTA completed station accessibility projects at Levittown on the Trenton Line, Paoli on the Paoli-Thorndale Line and Conshohocken. Work is underway at Ardmore, with more stations in design.

Building a Lifestyle Transit Network

As part of our 12-year capital investment program, we’re making stations accessible, acquiring new vehicles, investing in communications, and upgrading services for our buses, Metro, and rail to deliver on our vision of easy to use, frequent, and integrated transit.
