SEPACT II - DEMONSTRATION PROJECT: MARKETING REPORT #2; CHESTER COUNTY

INTERVIEWS WITH PASSENGERS HAVE INDICATED THAT AN APPARENTLY WORTHWHILE FEEDER MARKET BETWEEN THE NEW YORK LINE AND THE HARRISBURG LINE IS BEING OVERLOOKED FOR LACK OF POWER CONNECTIONS. CONTROLLED EXPERIMENTATION IS SUGGESTED TO DETERMINE THE TOTAL MARKET POTENTIAL, AS THE PORTION OF THE MARKET POTENTIAL ASSIGNABLE TO THE PENNSYLVANIA RAILROAD WILL PROBABLY BE HEAVILY DEPENDENT UPON FARE AND SERVICE ADJUSTMENTS. THE COMPLETED RIDERSHIP MARKET STUDIES OF THE AREAS IN CHESTER COUNTY SERVED BY THE MAIN LINE OF THE PENNSYLVANIA RAILROAD ARE COVERED.
