West Chester, Pa (April 22, 2022) – State Senator Carolyn Comitta today announced an additional $1 million in state funding for the parking and transportation facility adjacent to the site of the new Coatesville Train Station.

The funding, which comes through the Pennsylvania Redevelopment Assistance Capital Program (RACP), brings the total Senator Comitta has helped secure for the project over the past two years to $4.65 million.

“The new train station and parking facility are central to Coatesville’s revitalization and I remain committed to supporting the city’s strategic vision for economic growth, success, and opportunity for all residents, families, workers and community members,” Comitta said.

The multi-level 175,000 square foot parking facility is key to the success of the train station, widely considered a lynchpin of the city’s ongoing revitalization plans and strategic economic development vision. The $10 million parking facility will also feature bus transportation integration, covered waiting shelters, bike racks, ample lighting, wayfinding signage, and nearly 500 parking spaces to support SEPTA, Amtrak, and Link and Kraft Bus transportation services

Officials broke ground on the train station in the fall. It is slated for completion in 2025.

The Redevelopment Assistance Capital Program (RACP) is a Commonwealth reimbursement grant program administered by the Office of the Budget for the acquisition and construction of regional economic, cultural, civic, recreational, and historical improvement projects. RACP projects are authorized in the state budget, have a regional or multi-jurisdictional impact, and generate substantial increases or maintain current levels of employment, tax revenues, or other measures of economic activity.
