Congressman Boyle Announces $15 Million Federal Grant For SEPTA’s 30th Street Station Revitalization
WASHINGTON, DC – Today, Congressman Brendan F. Boyle (PA-13) announced that the Department of Transportation is awarding a $15 million grant to SEPTA to revitalize its 30th Street Station in Philadelphia, which he was proud to help secure. The funding comes from the Department’s Better Utilizing Investments to Leverage Development (BUILD) Grant Program, which aims to support major infrastructure improvements. Congressman Boyle released the following statement upon the receipt of the grant:
“I am very pleased that SEPTA will receive $15 million from the federal Department of Transportation to expand and revitalize 30th Street Station. 30th Street Station is a gem of our city: a window into our past and ambassador to those traveling through its halls. I believe we must protect its history while modernizing it to meet the needs of today. I know SEPTA shares these goals, so I was proud to help it secure this federal investment. These are exactly the kinds of infrastructure improvements this country needs to build a strong, durable economy that works for everyone. Philadelphia can lead by example.”
SEPTA’s 30th Street station serves 25,000 riders every day. Because of its close proximity to Amtrak’s 30th Street Station, it serves as a gateway for regional, national, and international travel.
