Driving Directions to the Cornwells Heights Station

 

From I-95 Southbound

 

Going south towards Philadelphia through Bensalem on I-95, go one mile past the Street Road exit, then take the Cornwells Heights Park-and-Ride exit from the leftmost lane directly into the parking lot.

 

From I-95 Northbound

 

Coming north from Philadelphia into Bensalem on I-95, take the Woodhaven Road exit and then almost immediately take the Route 13 exit.At the stoplight at the end of the exit ramp, turn left and go just a few hundred yards past the entrance to the Saint Katherine Drexel Shrine and turn right on Station Avenue.Just before going under the railroad track bridge at the bottom of the hill, turn right into the small, metered ($1/day, about 100 spaces) SEPTA parking lot, and drive out of the exit at its opposite end which connects to the giant, free PennDOT Park-and-Ride lot (1,600 spaces with only about 800 used at any time of the day currently; no charge for parking).

 

From Woodhaven Road Eastbound

 

Take the I-95 northbound exit (towards Trenton), and just before merging with I-95 traffic, take the Cornwells Heights Park-and-Ride exit directly into the parking lot.

 

 

Please take note that shuttle buses run quite frequently during rush hours to whisk riders from car to train or vice versa, so there isnít a lot of parking lot walking involved.

 

Please also notice, if the first lot you see looks fairly full, that there are actually two giant parking lots at the Cornwells Heights Park-and-Ride, and Lot 2, just south of Lot 1, has been completely empty every single day since it opened in November,1997, except for when the SEPTA R3 line has a complete interruption of service (maybe one day every other year) and the commuters from that line drive over to Cornwells Heights to catch the R7 instead.

 

The Park-and-Ride lots are on the Philadelphia-bound side of the tracks.If a shuttle bus isnít available, getting to the New York-bound side of the tracks requires walking north all the way to Station Avenue, going down some stairs and under the railroad bridge there, and then going up some stairs beside the bridge to get to the northbound platform.
