Public Presentation
for the
Lansdale Parking Garage Construction Project
Borough of Lansdale Parks Building
June 25, 2014 | 7 p.m.
Project Background
• Most frequently-used station on the
Lansdale/Doylestown Line.
• Parking is fully-utilized on many
• 7 mixed-use and residential
developments are planned for Lansdale
Borough which will increase ridership
from Lansdale Station.
• Development and background
population growth will increase the
demand for parking at Lansdale Station
by 2019.
• As a result, SEPTA will construct a parking garage to increase the number of available
spaces. In addition, a pedestrian bridge will be constructed in order to increase
multimodal circulation and support economic development initiatives in the area.
Purpose of the Project
• Lansdale Station has the most parking
spaces of any station along the
Lansdale/Doylestown Line.
• Current average daily boardings (2013)
are 1,396
• However, Projected Average Daily
Weekday Ridership is expected to
increase to 1,571 due to background
population growth and planned
Origins and Access Survey
A survey was conducted for riders at the
Lansdale Station to determine home origins
and access mode.
(687 distributed; 374 returned)
• Data was analyzed to determine where
riders originated and how they reached
the station.
• 56 municipalities were represented in
the Lansdale commutershed.
• Results were used to determine how
regional and local growth may affect on
ridership and access modes, as well as
future parking demand.
Parking Demand Study Results
• Total 2019 Parking Demand, without
Latent Demand: 943
• Total 2019 Parking Supply, with latent
demand: 1,073
People that would park if parking were
available, but if not, they would continue to
access the station by other means.
• Current Parking Supply: 590
• Future Parking Supply: 899
Latent Demand
899 spaces total
667 new garage
+ 120 spaces on the rear surface lot
+ 112 spaces in the front lot
This results in a Net Gain of 309 spaces at Lansdale Station.*
* The 93 spaces in Lansdale Borough’s Madison lot will no longer be used for
SEPTA station parking.
Existing Parking Facilities
Future Parking Facilities
590 spaces total
385 rear-lot parking spaces at the Station (100% utilization)
+ 112 front-lot parking spaces at the Station (100% utilization)
+ 93 in Lansdale Borough’s Madison lot (100% utilization)
• Construction anticipated to start in
the summer of 2015.
• Construction is expected to last
approximately 18 months.
• Access will be allowed through the
site during construction following the
outer perimeter of the parking lot.
• Entrance improvements will also be
made at Main Street.
