Ribbon Cutting At Crestmont Station - Community Cheers

Under a sun-drenched sky, neighbors gathered on Rubicam Avenue near Rockwell Avenue to witness the unveiling of an important piece of their community.

A special ribbon-cutting ceremony was recently attended by General Manager Joseph Casey, Pennsylvania State Representative Joshua D. Shapiro, and local government and community leaders at Crestmont Regional Rail station. Nestled in a quiet neighborhood in Abington, Montgomery County, Crestmont Station serves as a vital link for riders traveling north to Warminster, Bucks County, or south to Center City Philadelphia and Philadelphia International Airport.

"As we continue to make service improvements systemwide, we have not lost sight of how important our smaller stations and transit hubs are to the communities they serve", said GM Casey. "We believe everyone will be quite pleased with the improvements we have made here."

The deteriorating wooden shelter was replaced and completely rebuilt in only three months. The building now sports a new glass enclosed passenger shelter, new platforms and walkways, signage, lighting, and a new paved and striped ADA compliant parking lot on the outbound side.

"SEPTA was willing to work with us, to help us, to elevate our community," said Shapiro. "Thank you SEPTA for your outstanding leadership."

The approximately $425,000 Crestmont Station Revitalization Project broke ground in early September and was constructed with state Infrastructure, Safety & Renewal Program (ISRP) funds using a team of SEPTA in-house construction and maintenance workers.
