ESI President Stephen Mullin was quoted in a Philadelphia Business Journal article on “Extending SEPTA line to the Navy Yard easier said than done.” The Navy Yard is slowly turning into one of Philadelphia’s fastest-growing business parks. The only way to get to work at the Navy Yard, however, is to come by car via choked exit ramps from I-95 or pile onto the Navy Yard shuttle, which comes from Center City and the Pattison Avenue station. For now they there are no simply transit options, like subway or regional rail, but officials at the Navy Yard hope that changes in the future.
Mullin weighed in on the issue, explaining the benefits of more transportation and greater interconnectivity.
“‘Extending the subway or some other similar extension of serious transit service to the Navy Yard, once the engineering is figured out, would be great for Philadelphia’s economy by making the Navy Yard a true commercial center connected to Center City and even University City,’ said Stephen P. Mullin, president of Econsult Solutions, Inc. which worked with Parsons Brinckerhoff on the 2008 study.”
