EAST NORRITON, PA (July 30, 2012) - Public transportation directly to Einstein Medical Center Montgomery, the new 146-bed hospital opening in East Norriton, will begin on September 4. SEPTA will extend bus Route 90 from Norristown to provide better access to the new medical center, slated to open on September 29.
“This helps to ensure access to healthcare and employment for our patients, employees and their families,” said Bill Ryan, director of government relations for Einstein Healthcare Network. “Einstein is grateful to the SEPTA board members and staff who made this possible.”
The bus will leave hourly from the Norristown Transportation Center and turn left from Swede Road to Germantown Pike. It will continue along Germantown Pike to stops in front of Einstein Montgomery and outside the adjacent medical office building. It will return along the same route, turning left onto Swede road to serve Penn Square and continuing to Plymouth Meeting. Timetables are still being developed.
Einstein Medical Center Montgomery will open on September 29, however, bus service is being inaugurated earlier for employees who will begin work prior to opening.
The Route 90 extension was approved as a trial for up to one year, after which SEPTA will assess usage and economic performance and hold a public hearing. The agency’s board will then vote on making the route permanent.
