A crowd of young people jam PATCO's Eighth and Market station in May of 2016.

Commuters at a PATCO station in Center City Philadelphia are reporting on Friday a disturbance due to large crowds.

The transit agency issued a warning to riders about crowds at the 8th and Market Streets Station, advising riders to use other stations if possible.

The disturbance may have been caused, in part, by a Zac Brown Band concert at the BB&T Pavilion in Camden, New Jersey.

Many commuters took to Twitter to complain about public urination, drunk riders with coolers, riders vomiting, harassment and a lack of police presence.

PATCO said it was addressing the issue.

At 5:33 p.m., the transit agency reports the crowd at 8th and Market streets has dissipated.
