SEPTA representatives, joined by elected officials and community members, celebrated the authority’s rebuilt Langhorne train station facility at a ribbon cutting ceremony.
The Langhorne Station serves passengers on SEPTA’s West Trenton Regional Rail line. It is a connection point for SEPTA Bus Routes 14, 129 and 130.
“The improvements and new building at Langhorne Station demonstrate SEPTA’s commitment to investing in our communities,” said SEPTA General Manager Joseph Casey. “We are pleased to provide our current – and future – passengers with a comfortable place to wait for their trains, complete with technological advancements.”
The new Langhorne Station building features energy efficient heating, cooling and lighting systems; expanded indoor and outdoor passenger waiting areas; and a restroom. The station improvements project also included the installation of new electrical and communications systems, as well as an audio visual public address system.
The 18-month project cost $1.4 million. It was funded by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA).
Casey noted the cooperative effort that helped make project possible. “We thank our customers, Middletown Township and Langhorne, Langhorne Manor and Penndel Boroughs for their patience and support throughout the construction period,” Casey said. “The end result of this project is a beautiful station we will enjoy for many years to come.”
