PATCO obtains federal funds to upgrade passenger cars


The Delaware River Port Authority recently announced the federal government has earmarked $51 million to fund upgrades to the Port Authority Transit Corp. (PATCO) High Speed Line fleet — the largest-ever single federal allocation for PATCO, according to a prepared statement.

The agency will use the funds to refurbish 121 passenger cars. The project is expected to cost between $160 million and $180 million.

The 14.2-mile PATCO line runs between Lindenwold, N.J., and center city Philadelphia.
