    Commuters in Montgomery and Chester counties with no other extensive public transit options may face a particularly challenging time if SEPTA rail workers go on strike.

    Rob Henry, the executive director of the Greater Valley Forge Transportation Management Association, talks about the logistic and economic impacts in the outlying suburban communities should there be an interruption of regional rail service.

    Local roads, he says, would really feel the pinch.

    You can listen to his conversation with NewsWorks Tonight host Dave Heller.
