PATCO resumes normal service after earlier power problems

PATCO has resumed normal service after power problems forced the closure of several stations in Philadelphia on Tuesday afternoon.

The regional rail carrier says a fault in a power line provided by SEPTA required emergency repairs at the stations along Locust Street.

The work was completed in time for the 4:12 p.m. EB out of 15th/16th and Locust to depart.

"We sincerely appreciate your patience during this service disruption. Thanks for riding!" PATCO said in a tweet.

PATCO carried just under 11 million passengers in 2017, an average of about 39,000 per weekday.
