An extensive reconstruction of the Levittown Station, including improvements that deliver full accessibility under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), is officially complete.
On Thursday, October 3, 2019, SEPTA 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. Without Act 89, long-needed station reconstruction projects like this would not be possible. These projects keep people moving, and are critical to the growth and economic vitality of the region and the state.
This project was years in the making. Even before funding was available, SEPTA worked closely with the Tullytown Borough officials to lay the groundwork for this successful effort. It 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
For this project, SEPTA had a vision of turning an aging station into a modern transportation center and we are proud of the results and look forward to serving this community for decades to come. We hope you agree!
