MIDDLETOWN TWP., Pennsylvania (WPVI) — Service began at SEPTA’s new Wawa Station Sunday morning.
Regional Rail connects Center City to Middletown Township, Delaware County.
“This area was kind of forgotten for a long time. I think this is going to be huge,” Brookhaven resident Steve Schultz said.
The new Wawa station has a parking deck with 600 spaces.
The deal will also see the Media/Elwyn Regional Rail line renamed the Media/Wawa line.
SEPTA trains last served the area in 1986.
Many say they are satisfied with the progress.
“It’s amazing they brought it back. I thought the rail was going to go away. Now it’s back,” said rider Danny White of Chester.
The first trip began at 06:00 on Sunday.
Wawa Community Day at the station will be held Monday, which includes free coffee in the morning, and free tea and pretzels to end the evening.
