Thompson Ave Station SEPTA 101 Trolley Springfield PA

December 3, 2009

Welcome to the Thompson Ave Station of the SEPTA 101 Trolley in Springfield PA.

This is one of the small on-demand trolley stops on the SEPTA 101 Trolley Line running from the 69th Street Terminal to Media PA.  It is located at the crossing of Thompson Avenue just to the east of Sproul Rd and north-west of its intersection with the Baltimore Pike. This is just one stop to the west of the larger Woodland Avenue stop and the next station west is the Springfield Mall trolley stop.

The station itself has a small shed on the south side of the track (there is only one track from Woodland through Media).  There is no dedicated SEPTA parking at this location and only limited areas on the adjacent streets to park or to drop off/pick up passengers.  It is conveniently located to several residential communities of mostly single family homes.  The video will provide a better idea of the immediate area:

There is a nice selection of homes throughout this area of Springfield.  On the far side of Sproul Rd are the Villas at Golf View, a recently completed active adult community of 194 single level homes.  Just to the north is the community of Mary Dell Farms containing mostly split level single family homes.  Toward the east and south is a nice community of mixed style single family homes.  Pricing in the area for homes currently on the market range from a low of $239,000 to a high of $379,000, averaging $297,000.  Sales in the last six months have ranged from $169,000 to $419,000 averaging $273,000.
