PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – PATCO riders have a new way to follow their train schedules on the go.

The website’s been upgraded, according to DRPA CEO John Hanson.

“We’ve optimized the schedule on our website for mobile phones so it puts the schedule for a given station right in the palm of the customer’s hand.”

And given the changing nature of that schedule as the rail work project plays out on the Ben Franklin Bridge, that option could prove beneficial to many prime time riders, particularly when single tracking goes full time for a couple months around Memorial Day.

The upgrade works on smartphones and other handheld digital devices.
