Limerick Completes Bus Shelter on SEPTA Bus Route 93 Along Ride Pike

Bus Shelter

The Limerick Board of Supervisors is pleased to have worked with an anonymous local business donor in supporting residents who utilize regional bus transit services.  A busy, unimproved SEPTA bus stop on West Ridge Pike near Township Line Road was recently upgraded with a bus shelter, which will provide safety and protection from inclement weather.    

The Limerick Township Board of Supervisors approved matching funds to supplement the donation.  The entire project was completed by the Township Public Works Department, which has a long-standing history of completing in-house projects and saving the township significant tax dollars over the past decade.

Joseph Platt, Traffic Planning and Design, Inc., the Township’s Traffic Engineer, provided the design and obtained the approvals from PennDOT in order to place the structure in the Right-of-Way of the state road. 

As Limerick continues to experience growth in both the residential and commercial sectors, the Board is committed to enhancing public transit alternatives, which reduce traffic congestion and provide commuting options for our residents.  To enhance the convenience of bus ridership and encourage more residents to use public transit as a commuting option, this bus shelter project will be used as a prototype for future improvements along SEPTA bus routes within the township.
