“When it was built it was good, but everything has grown around it while it did not change,” Harding said. “Now, we’ve got everything on one side of the tracks, all new lighting, new handicap ramps. There’s new waiting booths to get on the train and new landscaping, it’s awesome.”

The ramps make the station fully compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act, with infrastructure renovations updating some portions more than 80-years-old.

According to SEPTA, the funding was secured through a TIGER Grant and Pennsylvania State Act 89,

Alongside the mayor were Congressman Brian Fitzpatrick, State Representative Perry Warren, and other local officials in attending the celebration.
