Eastern Montgomery County sits in the southeastern corner of Pennsylvania, just a few miles north of Philadelphia city limits. The region’s strategic location provides various outlets for efficient transportation. From well-maintained highway systems to accessible railways, airports and waterways, businesses, residents and visitors all enjoy the efficient and convenient travel options available here.
Vital routes traveling in and around the Eastern Montgomery County region include the Schuylkill Expressway (Interstate 76), Route 309, U.S. Route 202 and Interstate 95. Access to the extensive, highly-traveled Pennsylvania Turnpike is available via the Willow Grove interchange, as well as in Plymouth Township where “The Blue Route” (Interstate 476) supplies a link with the toll road’s Northeastern Extension.
Affordable, high-quality public transportation is supplied through the Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority (SEPTA). SEPTA serves a growing annual ridership of approximately 334 million people across a more than 2,200-square-mile service area. The multi-modal transit system operates more than 140 fixed-routes in the region, including bus routes, subway/high-speed lines, trolley routes (light rail and trackless) and Regional Rail lines (commuter rail). Customized Community Transportation (ADA paratransit and door-to-door Shared-Ride) services are also available.
The Jenkintown Train Station is identified as the area’s center of transportation into the Philadelphia metropolitan area. Travelers utilizing SEPTA’s commuter trains through the Jenkintown Train Station have access to Philadelphia’s 30th Street Station, where riders connect with several routes via Amtrak’s intercity passenger service. For further access to the Philadelphia area, commuters take advantage of SEPTA’s Route 55 bus line, which covers the 611 corridor from Doylestown and Willow Grove, linking the area to the Olney Transportation Center in downtown Philadelphia.
