Doing Business with SRPRA

The proposals received in response to the SRPRA Request for Proposals (RFP) for a Social Media Consultant are currently under review. A selection is anticipated to be made sometime in May 2023.

SRPRA is considering one or more solicitations in the coming months for professional services including but not necessarily limited to planning, environmental documentation, design and engineering. As decisions are made regarding what types of services will be needed and the extent to which they are packaged together or procured separately, updates will be posted on the Authority website to provide interested parties advance notice of upcoming contracting opportunities.

Amtrak Bus Service

Amtrak launched Thruway Connection bus service between Reading and Philadelphia on June 6, 2022, as a precursor to restoration of passenger rail service in the Schuylkill River corridor. This service consists of two daily trips in each direction, and is one of many Amtrak Thruway Connection bus routes that Amtrak operates as an integrated part of its Northeast Corridor and National Network. In addition to the stations at Reading and Philadelphia, the bus serves intermediate stations at Pottstown and Phoenixville, and provides safe, comfortable, economical public transportation that connects communities in the Schuylkill River Valley with metropolitan areas in the Northeast Corridor and beyond.
