The Master Plan is intended to serve as a comprehensive approach to planning for sustainable transportation and land use conditions within the 25-mile-long corridor. Traditional transportation projects, community and land use planning practices, intermodal facilities/park-and-ride lots, and land preservation activities comprise the strategic improvement program.

Leo Bagley's plan to toll 422 and run a train up to Reading is nothing more than a ploy to suck Berks County into SEPTA's funding pool. No one is going to ride a train from Reading to Philadephia 5 days a week.

Give me a break! And no tolls on 422!
