Location and Transportation

Eastern Montgomery County is located on the eastern seaboard with the economic marketplaces of Philadelphia, New York City and Trenton just a stone’s throw away.

This strategic location provides various outlets for efficient transportation. From well-maintained highway systems to accessible railways, airports and waterways, businesses, residents and visitors all enjoy the efficient and convenient travel options available here.

Major thoroughfares traveling in and around the Eastern Montgomery County region include the Schuylkill Expressway (Interstate 76), Route 309, U.S. Route 202 and Interstate 95. Access to the extensive, highly traveled Pennsylvania Turnpike is available via the Willow Grove interchange, as well as in Plymouth Township where “The Blue Route” (Interstate 476) supplies a link with the toll road’s Northeastern Extension.

Affordable, high-quality public transportation is supplied through the Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority (SEPTA). SEPTA serves 3.9 million people via bus, subway, elevated rail, commuter rail, light rail and electric trolleybus. Customized Community Transportation (ADA paratransit and door-to-door Shared-Ride) services are also available.

The Jenkintown-Wyncote Station is the area’s center of transportation into the Philadelphia metropolitan area. Travelers utilizing SEPTA’s commuter trains through the Jenkintown-Wyncote Station have access to Philadelphia’s 30th Street Station, where riders connect with several routes via Amtrak’s intercity passenger service. For further access to the Philadelphia area, commuters take advantage of SEPTA’s Route 55 bus line, which covers the 611 corridor from Doylestown and Willow Grove, linking the area to the Olney Transportation Center in downtown Philadelphia.
