As a relatively local resident, Ardmore has better access to the local area being closer to a major road and artery in Lancaster ave and Montgomery ave.
To give some context about the area: 103, 104, and 106 routes stop at Ardmore to loop back to 69th and 44 to Cynwyd, 105 stops at Ardmore and Stops at Villanova but is a half a mile from Nova station right next door to the P&W stop. Admittedly, the buses can simply be rerouted to accommodate the change but SEPTA will get an earful about it. Nova is right next to Blue Route/Lancaster ave interchange which could lead to more park and ride commuters from Conshy, especially with Villanova university increasing in size. Although there are more reverse commuters who use Radnor and Wayne stations to get to the business parks at Radnor and King of Prussia respectivly. Operationally I can see why it would be better to use Nova because of the straight of way, as a local user of Radnor station I'm annoyed slightly.
What I would be curious about is how this will effect dispatching for the Paoli line, more specifically if they could increase headway for the line.
