GVF and the Borough of Conshohocken Celebrate the Conshohocken Cab


GVF, a not-for-profit with over 33 years of transportation planning experience, hosted a press event in the Borough of Conshohocken on February 14 to celebrate the launch of the Conshohocken Cab. Elected officials representing the Borough of Conshohocken at the State, County, and Local levels braved the cold morning to say a few words to mark the occasion.


In attendance were speakers Senator Vincent Hughes, State Representative Greg Scott, Montgomery County Commissioners Neil Makhija (Vice-Chair) and Thomas DiBello, and Conshohocken Borough President Tina Sokolowski. Pamela Sarne McCormick, GVF Board Member and Director of Legislative and Community Affairs at SEPTA, Conshohocken Borough Mayor Yaniv Aronson, Conshohocken Borough Manager Stephanie Cecco, members of the Conshohocken Borough Council, and members of the team at TransNet came to show support for the new shuttle service.


The Conshohocken Cab, is a continuous loop, 14-passenger shuttle, that stops at 20 locations in and around the Borough. The shuttle provides easy access to entertainment and dining, large residential complexes, and shopping, and connects to the SEPTA train station for access to the regional rail network. Information about fares and stops can be found at ConshohockenCab.org.



Maureen Farrell, Deputy Executive Director of GVF, kicked off the press event by calling GVF the "best kept secret" in transportation planning and mobility choices for employers and communities in southeastern PA. She described the 20 years of partnership between the Borough of Conshohocken and GVF, and applauded the investment that the borough is making in its residents by providing an amenity that helps make Conshohocken a better place to live, work, and play.





In a nod to Valentine's Day, PA State Senator Vincent Hughes called the Conshohocken Cab the borough's "love letter" to its residents and that the teamwork between the Borough of Conshohocken and GVF made the launch of the shuttle a reality.





PA State Representative Greg Scott said that the shuttle represents a focus on the growth of the community of Conshohocken and reiterated Senator Hughes in praising the Borough of Conshohocken's partnership with GVF to make the idea of the Conshohocken Cab a reality.






Montgomery County Commissioner Neil Makhija, Vice-Chair, spoke about the growth of the Borough of Conshohocken, and Montgomery County as a whole, over the past decade but particularly post-pandemic. He called the Borough of Conshohocken a "center of growth and innovation" that makes it an attractive place for people to live and work.






Montgomery County Commissioner Thomas DiBello called the Conshohocken Cab a "great opportunity" to eliminate traffic and to help elderly residents move about the community, and that he hopes to see other communities emulating the Borough's investment in mobility choices.






Conshohocken Borough President Tina Sokolowski wrapped up the press event. She referenced the years of strategic planning and development that have made the Borough of Conshohocken a model for Montgomery County as we move into the future. She recognized the opportunity for change and growth of the shuttle program and its ability to enhance accessibility to the great amenities in the Borough.



The press event ended with some networking and a ceremonial ride to the SEPTA train station and back.
