THE LATEST NEWTOWN SCHEME
The Bucks County Planning Commission is seeking proposals for a study to consider Bus Rapid Transit and a pedestrial trail (file in MS Word format) along the all-but-abandoned Newtown branch right-of-way between Fox Chase and Newtown Boro. SEPTA rail service was discontinued in the early 1980s north of Fox Chase; repeated attempts - mainly pushed by Bucks County officials - to restore rail service on this branch have been met with strong opposition from certain factions in Montgomery County (read: the Pitcairn's of Bryn Athyn). The study is expected to be complete by June 2006.
