The SEPTA Norristown High Speed Line was the Route 100 Trolley for many years. Renamed by SEPTA in September 2009 - for reasons which are not entirely clear – it runs from Norristown in Montgomery County, through King of Prussia, and ends at 69th Street Terminal, one end of the
Blue Line / Market-Frankford Line / "the el"
- which are all different names for the same transit line. From 69th Street, you can easily travel into Center City Philadelphia, via the Blue Line.
Important Note: The Norristown High Speed Line does not offer direct service to the King of Prussia Mall. Instead, it only takes you to Gulph Mills Station, where you can connect with the Route 125 bus, which takes you to the King of Prussia Plaza - the ride on the bus will take about 11 minutes or so. However, the 125 only runs about every 30 minutes or so, outside of rush hours - during the day, and at night, only once an hour or so. So you'd be better off driving, if possible.
From Norristown to 69th Street - if you sit by a window - you'll have a great view of the idyllic Philadelphia countryside, as you speed through the Main Line and then more modest suburbs, en route to 69th Street, which sits on the border between Philadelphia and Delaware County. The length of the journey, between Norristown Transportation Center and 69th Street Terminal is 13.4 miles.
There is also
SEPTA Regional Rail
service to Norristown Transportation Center. The Manayunk/Norristown Line - formerly known as the R6 Regional Rail Line - also has a stop at Norristown Transportation Center, where you can connect to the Norristown High Speed Line, without leaving the complex.
