    Riding PATCO could be a little bit slower starting soon.

    The next round of PATCO track work will mean revised schedules on Thursday and Friday starting next week.

    The transit agency said Thursday that the next stage of its $103 million track rehabilitation project will begin after next Thursday's morning rush hour commute. Riders will be faced with service gaps of up to 26 minutes on Thursday afternoon and all day Friday.

    "We regret the inconvenience this causes our passengers," said PATCO general manager John Rink. "But we must move forward to complete necessary repairs and upgrades to our tracks. This complex and challenging project is a part of our ongoing role as stewards of invaluable public assets and our commitment to our core mission of providing the highest level of safety and service to our customers."
