PATCO Locust Street Stations Reopen After Power Problem

What to Know

  • Emergency power supply repairs are causing the closure of 3 Philadelphia PATCO stations Tuesday.
  • The 8th & Market Station will be the only Center City Philadelphia PATCO station open during Tuesday's commute.
  • Free rides will be offered to anyone boarding at 8th & Market streets in Philadelphia.

PATCO says all stations have reopened after power problems prompted closure of stations on Locust Street.

The regional rail carrier said Tuesday afternoon that a fault in a power line provided by SEPTA required emergency repairs at the stations.

PATCO said in an update on Twitter shortly after 4 p.m. Tuesday that all stations had reopened and trains would depart about every five or six minutes from the 15th/16th and Locust station during rush hour.

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