The Newtown Rail Trail will be an extension of the Pennypack Creek Trail and use the Right of Way of SEPTA's former Newtown Line. Planning is currently broken into two segments. The southern section in Southampton Township is currently in the design phase. The remander of the 8 mile line to Newtown Borough is currently waiting for Northampton Township to approve support for the feasibility study of the trail. Opposition to the trail from some residents has been strong enough for the Township to table a vote.
