TMA Bucks was on hand Tuesday, September 4 as SEPTA held a ribbon cutting ceremony to celebrate the completion of the Yardley Station Improvement Project. Added station amenities make the station fully accessible with the Americans With Disability Act.
The Yardley Train Station Improvement Project was made possible by a federal TIGER Grant and Pennsylvania State Act 89, which provided the resources needed for SEPTA to invest in major improvements along its West Trenton Regional Rail Line.
With TIGER Grant funding, SEPTA was able to strategically invest in the critical West Trenton Separation project. This allowed for the completion of ADA improvements at Yardley Regional Rail Station and the upcoming Yardley Substation Replacement project, which are funded under Act 89. The substation project will replace infrastructure that is over 80 years old.
The Yardley Station Improvement Project is also a part of SEPTA’s Rebuilding the System program. All work was completed using SEPTA in-house forces. Working with the Borough of Yardley, SEPTA re-purposed one of the original station platforms to make a protected waiting area for the kiss and ride lot.
