On the train to see the Pope? It’s been a blessedly easy trip
It's been another easy ride for riders into Philadelphia for Sunday afternoon's Papal Mass.
SEPTA has ended its schedule for bringing riders into Center City Philadelphia on the Trenton and West Trenton.
"No one has had to wait longer than it took for the next trains to come in," said spokeswoman Heather Redfern.
"Overall things look good" for NJ Transit rail, light rail and bus executive director Ronnie Hakim tells New Jersey 101.5. "It looks like our service is certainly meeting demand," adding that there are many customer service ambassadors on hand to answer questions.
"We're coming down to the home stretch," tweeted PATCO, which reports trains will run into Philadelphia every 16 minutes until 4 p.m. Eastbound service from the 9/10th Street stationback to New Jersey begins at 5:30 p.m and continues until 3:40 a.m.
