PATCO workshop this Thursday

Do you ride PATCO often? Do you have some thoughts about the new track work schedule? If so, there’s a way you can make your voice heard. This Thursday at 6pm, the Delaware Valley Association of Rail Passengers is holding a workshop at their Center City office to discuss ways the Delaware River Port Authority could improve service during this 60-day track work schedule and the 50-day track work schedule to follow later this summer. The organization has worked for decades to give a voice to the region’s mass transit riders, so there’s every reason to believe that if you have an idea for PATCO, it’ll get in front of someone who can make a difference.

From the event’s Facebook page:

Join us to discuss how PATCO can best mitigate the horrendous effects of the all-day, all-week track closure starting in June. We want to make sure that conditions don’t deteriorate to the point they were at earlier this year when passengers were passing out because of crush conditions. DVARP’s Board will take anything and everything discussed at this workshop into consideration, and pass along recommendations to the DRPA and PATCO.

The event takes place from 6-8pm at the DVARP headquarters at 1601 Walnut Street, Suite 1129, Philadelphia, PA. For more information, check out the Facebook event at
