DVRPC releases a plan to improve Fern Rock Transportation Center

The Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission released a plan late last month on how SEPTA can improve Fern Rock Transportation Center.  Fern Rock was rebuilt to handle thousands of Regional Rail passengers transfering to the Broad Street Line when service to Center City was suspended due to Railworks Construction.  However, these days there’s a lot of excess space, making transfers between buses, trains, and the subway quite a hike.

Some suggestions include separating car and bus traffic (with a bus only driveway), better connecting the station to surrounding neighborhoods (as there is no access to the neighborhood on the east side of the station), improving parking and drop off areas, and more!  Plan Philly has more details about the project, and Jayayess1190 started a thread about it in the forums.
