Reading to Philadelphia intercity passenger rail project accepted in federal program

The Schuylkill River Passenger Rail Authority (SRPRA) received confirmation from the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) that its application to participate in FRA’s Corridor Identification and Development Program (CIDP) has been accepted. Acceptance enables SRPRA to access federal funds to advance the return of passenger rail service from Reading to Philadelphia and beyond, and significantly increases the likelihood that the service will be successfully implemented.
