The Greater Susquehanna Valley is a major transportation hub for the northeastern United States, with more than half of the buying power and over 40 percent of the U.S. population reachable within 500 miles. This location places the Valley approximately three hours from Baltimore, New York City, Philadelphia and Washington D.C., and within a quality transportation system complete with major interstate access, public transit outlets, railways and airports.
The Greater Susquehanna Valley boasts an envious position crisscrossed by an extensive network of highways. Interstates 80 and 180 intersect just north of the Valley, while interstates 76, 81 and 83 are about one hour to the south, in Harrisburg. Routes 11/15, 35, 45, 192 and 522 are among the many further arterial roadways winding through the communities of the Valley.
Public transportation alternatives are available throughout the region, as are companies like Susquehanna Trailways, offering limousine, taxi and motorcoach service. The Valley also features several general aviation facilities, including Penn Valley Airport and Danville Airport, and is within close distance to Harrisburg International Airport, which provides daily, nonstop service to 14 destinations via seven airlines.
Like commuters and tourists, area industry takes advantage of the Valley’s location and avenues for transportation. In addition to the outlets noted above, businesses have ready access to major ports in Baltimore and Philadelphia, and a comprehensive rail system supported by the SEDA-COG Joint Rail Authority (which operates five short-line railroads covering nearly 200 miles in Central Pennsylvania), Canadian Pacific Railroad and Norfolk Southern.
