More Transit Options Made Available To US Open Spectators

Posted: Updated:
Norristown, PA -

With the thousands of people planning to attend the US open in Ardmore, finding parking will be a problem.

That's why SEPTA has announced additional train service, along the Paoli, Thorndale line and the Norristown high speed line.

Free shuttle buses will be added, running from Rosemont station to the golf course.

SEPTA says that you may want to think twice about driving to the event.

In addition to the announcement made Tuesday about Montgomery County's Cherry Street parking garage staying open longer for the U.S. Open, commissioners had more news for drivers.

The Norristown parking garage will now have expanded hours for the rest of the work week.

Josh Shapiro, the chair of the board of county commissioners said Wednesday, "with thousands of gold fans taking advantage of SEPTA's excellent service to Merion Golf Club both on the regional rails and Norristown High Speed Line, we have significantly expanded the hours of the Cherry Street garage."

The daily parking fee will be $6 dollars.

 

As of this morning, over 10-thousand people have used the extra service.

The additional service will run through Sunday.
