Conshohocken station is a station located along the SEPTA Manayunk/Norristown Line. The station, located below Fayette Street, at Washington and Harry Streets in Conshohocken, Pennsylvania, includes a 95-space parking lot. In FY 2013, Conshohocken station had a weekday average of 646 boardings and 682 alightings.[1]

Trains run with relative infrequency from this station given the actual and potential ridership, 30 to 40 minutes apart in rush hour and 1 hour or longer apart off-peak. Center City Philadelphia is about a 40-minute travel time away by regional rail from here, though it is only 15 miles away.

Station layout[edit]

The station building, which is currently a trailer, is only open weekdays during the morning and early afternoon. Tickets can be purchased at the station during these times only.[2] SEPTA's station should not be confused with the station building on the abandoned Pennsylvania Railroad Schuylkill Branch, which is now the Schuylkill River Trail. This building, located a short distance away up Harry Street, is now a privately owned café and does not sell tickets.
