    A Pennsylvania-New Jersey rapid-transit system will continue to operate on a modified schedule for the evening rush, one day after a train hit part of a downed utility pole.

    The Port Authority Transit Corp. says eastbound trains to Lindenwold will run every 10 minutes from 2:35 p.m. to 6:35 p.m. on Tuesday. Westbound trains will operate every 20 minutes.

    A PATCO train carrying 24 passengers hit the pole Monday morning in Camden, New Jersey, halting service and leaving thousands of commuters scrambling to get to work.

    Transit officials say the utility pole was hit first by a freight train on an upper track, leaving a section in the PATCO train's path.

    The 14-mile line serves 38,000 riders daily.
