Allegheny: Still will be sometime before more development reaches up there
East Falls through Conshy: All growing, dense, and very established neighborhoods
Norristown: While most people do not think of Norristown, the town is very dense and has grown by 10% from 2000 to 2010 and estimates have 5% growth from 2010-2017. Norristown is almost back at peak population so there is potential there as well.
Agree. Both the Norristown line and the Paoli/Thornsale line through the Main Line go through very dense, practically city like towns. They need to increase frequency on both lines and have them running AT LEAST every 30 minutes.
