The proposed SEPTA Bryn Athyn could potentially be located at the existing station site on Fetter's Mill Road.
Benefits & Beneficiaries
Local Bryn Athyn residents, who will no longer need to traverse the traffic on Huntingdon Pike to use Bethayers Station (if parking is available)
Lower Moreland Township - Reduced traffic on Huntingdon Pike from Southampton & Holland residents who currently do commute to Bethayers or Fox Chase
Bryn Athyn College: existing students will have access to train service to Center City; new and prospective students may find a small college with
walkable access to train service as a selling point for the school (Other examples: Villanova (R5 Thorndale), Swarthmore (R3 West Trenton),
Holy Family University (R7-Trenton), Univeristy of Delaware(R2-Newark), Del Val College (R5 Doylestown), Drexel(at 30th St. Station)
R3 West Trenton Bethayers Station patrons: Since local residents who currently ride SEPTA use the Bethayers station, a restored R8 would free up
parking and seating on currently crowded R3 trains, and allow other Abington residents access to the Bethayers Station.
Glencairn Museum:As Philadelphia is a destination for international tourists, Bryn Athyn could
attract tourists from around the world to visit the Bryn Athyn Historic District
Bryn Athyn wins with increased tourism and local spending, but maintains its quiet and tranquil setting without the cars,traffic and pollution.
Looking north towards Newtown.
