Amt Parksburg-eastbound-stationThis Friday the Transportation Management Association of Chester County (TMACC) will host a Fall Luncheon featuring the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation’s (PennDOT) Jennie Granger.

Granger, head of the railways department as well as Aviation Director, will discuss the initiatives, goals and strategies for the future of Chester County’s five major train stations (Paoli, Downingtown, Coatesville, Parkesburg and Exton) based on PennDOT’s Plan The Keystone study.

“The Keystone Corridor is an asset to Chester County residents, businesses and elected officials,” said TMACC Executive Director, P. Timothy Phelps. “We continue to witness strong ridership growth. The initiatives proposed by PennDOT to improve the needs of these rapidly growing train stations directly benefits riders and improves service. Our Luncheon will provide ideas and realistic answers from Jennie Granger which will shed light into the future of these transportation hubs.”

In addition to her aviation duties, she provides project management support to the Multimodal Deputate in the development of capital improvements along the Keystone line.
