PATCO advised commuters to use another form of transportation. NJ Transit honored PATCO Freedom Cards and tickets during this time.
PATCO said "service is suspended this morning (6/20) as a result of issues created by last night's storm. Several stations flooded & track ballast (stone that holds track in place) in some areas washed away. Repairs/inspections underway."
