I agree. I've been living in Cherry Hill for about 7 years now and I've used PATCO the whole time. I can pretty much say I haven't had a real complaint about them until now. It is a shame that all of this stuff is hitting them at the same time. Quite the PR nightmare.

I don't even have an issue with modifying schedules and whatnot for the construction. But if they can't keep these schedules and there is the potential for 30 minutes between trains during rush hour, that is a huge problem.

That first Friday of the modified schedule, 4 trains didn't show up and the 5th was PACKED tight. So, they basically skipped 4 trains in the 4-5 o'clock hour. Inexcusable.

Not sure what I'm gonna do.

Living in Cherry Hill, at least you have the option of catching the Atlantic City Line as an alternative to PATCO.

I'm technically Cherry Hill, but I'm closer to Cherry Hill East HS and Route 73......

The problem with the Atlantic City Line are the times. You either catch a 6:04 am train or wait until 8:18 am.
The 8:18 is out of the question. The 6:04 is pretty early, even for me.......

Then coming home is either a 3:47, 5:15 or 6:14........bad times...
