PennDOT officials say it was important to upgrade safety as well as accessibility.

“You have to make sure that anyone can access these services, so you’ll find level boarding platforms. There’s new parking, elevator access, but primarily accessibility and something that really worked for the entire community,” PennDOT Communications Director Erin Waters-Trasatt said.

The new station is located at 270 West Emaus Street in Middletown.
