During Pope Francis’ visit in September, PATCO will change how it charges riders.
Riders are currently charged by how far they travel on the commuter rail system. That will change to a flat rate during Pope Francis' visit Sept. 26 and 27, according to CBS Philly.
Officials expect the system to be flooded with passengers. PATCO will offer one-day tickets for $5 and two-day tickets for $10, according to philly.com.
On those two days, riders will need renewable Freedom Cards, according to CBS Philly.
