PATCO’s General Manager To Step Down After Nine Years

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – PATCO’s General Manager will call it a career on April One ending more than a quarter century of service within the Delaware River Port Authority.

Through all the noise that’s come out of the DRPA is recent months, Bob Box has remained a constant, steady influence over PATCO, which he’s run for almost nine years.

And as he gets ready to depart, he’s suggesting commissioners value the 350 co-workers he’ll leave behind, “You have a tremendous staff. They’ll work well for you. They’ll keep you out of trouble. Please treat them nice.”

Box left his job with PennDOT in 1985 to join the DRPA as an engineer heading up that department six years later. His PATCO achievements could be topped by one that got rolling this week, literally, as work began to refurbish all 120 rail cars from top to bottom saving the agency millions over buying new ones.

He also pushed for light rail service into Woodbury and Glassboro, a project now on the shelf thanks to a lack of adequate funding.
