Isn't federal dollars given out more or less as matching money these days? I think its noteworthy that none of the local gov'ts out in the KOP area have shown much interest in this extension, its all come from business and transit groups.

Also remember that SEPTA loves to spend other peoples cash on planning (remember the multi-year plans for a rail link to Reading, etc.) but actually building anything is completely different. Theres something to be said for their thinking that unless a extension is self supporting or underwritten by other parties, having SEPTA spend money on additional operating costs just takes money away from their existing system.
