PATCO says its trains are running at 10-minute intervals Saturday from each of its four New Jersey stations to the papal visit in Philadelphia.

The agency had been operating express trains from each station heading to Philadelphia.

As of 11 a.m., it switched to local trains stopping at each of the four New Jersey Stations before arriving at the 9/10 Locust station in Philadelphia.

PATCO says it made the adjustment in response to relatively low demand, and can adjust service levels again should the demand increase.
