SEPTA has announced an extensive reconstruction of the Levittown Station, including improvements that deliver full accessibility under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), has been completed.
SEPTA recently gathered with federal, state and local officials at the Bucks County transportation hub to mark the occasion with a ribbon cutting. The Levittown Station renewal project was made possible thanks to federal funding and Pennsylvania Act 89 of 2013 which has provided a dedicated and comprehensive source for funding transportation infrastructure improvement projects throughout the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
The Levittown Station Reconstruction Project was a coordinated effort to provide accessibility throughout the station, and to improve safety and boarding operations for both rail and bus customers. Approximately 550 riders on the Trenton Line use Levittown Station on an average weekday, and it also provides connections to Bus Routes 127 and 128. Highlights of the Levittown Reconstruction Project include:
- Installation of a passenger overpass with elevators
- Construction of high-level platforms and accessible ramps
- New passenger shelters with canopies
- New station building that includes a waiting area and restrooms
- Upgrade of pedestrian and vehicular access to enhance safety
- Reconfiguration and expansion of parking facilities, including adding 70 additional spaces
- New stormwater management system
- Upgraded signage and LED lighting
