The SRPRA's purpose is to facilitate the return of passenger rail service to Phoenixville, Pottstown, and Reading by working with various rail companies, local governments, and state and federal agencies to restore this service.
Several passenger rail trips per day between Reading and Philadelphia, will make it easy for people in Reading, Pottstown and Phoenixville to reach Philadelphia, the Philadelphia International Airport, and cities in the northeast like New York and Washington. Learn More
