Delaware River Port Authority
The Delaware River Port Authority is looking at an advertising deal by SEPTA and wondering if it can do the same for the cash-strapped train system.
New Jersey’s state comptroller has reviewed the inner operations of the Delaware River Port Authority, saying his office has found a pattern of waste and mismanagement that cost the bi-state agency millions of dollars over a number of years.
A video on Patco’s web site offering humorously helpful tips is just part of the “Courtesy Counts” campaign, launched after a rider survey found four recurring complaints.
Tom Raftery has been selected to serve as the agency’s first inspector general, one of a series of reforms adopted by the DRPA more than a year ago.
As the Delaware River Port Authority reconsiders plans to build a bicycle and pedestrian ramp on the Camden side of the Ben Franklin Bridge, those on the Philly side would like the DRPA to consider reopening it’s PATCO station at 6th and Race.
The Food Bank of South Jersey is getting $2 million from the Delaware River Port Authority, in what officials call the last of the DRPA’s economic development spending.
“I thought we changed our direction, and as I sit here today I’m not sure we have,” Pennsylvania auditor general Jack Wagner said.
A committee within the Delaware River Port Authority meets this morning to approve a plan that would spend the last almost $30-million of funds that had been earmarked for economic development. Some of that money is still targeted to agencies that have little, if anything, to do with the agency’s core mission.
There’s a new man at the helm of PATCO, the commuter rail line run by the Delaware River Port Authority.
The first real steps toward making a light rail line between Camden and Glassboro are about to be approved, although it’ll be years before you’ll be able to jump on board.
The Delaware River Port Authority was supposed to be out of the economic development business, but there’s a $29-million pool of unspent funds earmarked for that purpose.
SEPTA will cease all operations early Sunday morning because of dangers posed to commuters and workers by Hurricane Irene.
The PATCO trains between Philadelphia and New Jersey have resumed service in time for rush hour after being shut down following this afternoon’s earthquake.
Local food banks say they’re still waiting for $2 million in funding from the Delaware River Port Authority, approved by the agency more than a year and a half ago but subsequently put on hold.
There might be some toll shock for New Jersey residents heading to Philadelphia for Fourth of July festivities and Pennsylvanians returning from the Jersey shore after the long holiday weekend.
