DRPA Offers Three Easy Ways to Get to Farm Aid

Heading to Farm Aid this weekend? Avoid the traffic and let the Delaware River Port Authority's family of transportation services take you to the music. Whether you hop aboard the PATCO High Speed Line, ride the RiverLink Ferry or stroll across the Ben Franklin Bridge pedestrian walkway, DRPA can get you to the Camden Waterfront and back hassle free. Ride PATCO to Farm Aid at the Tweeter Center on the Camden Waterfront. Exit at PATCO's Broadway Station at the Walter Rand Transportation Center and connect with the NJ Transit's River LINE for access to the Waterfront. Or, take the scenic route and walk across the Ben Franklin Bridge pedestrian walkway to access the Camden Waterfront. The Ben Franklin Bridge walkway hours will be extended to midnight on Saturday, September 30 to accommodate those attending Farm Aid. In addition to the PATCO High Speed Line and Ben Franklin Bridge walkway, the RiverLink Ferry System is another great way to get to the fun this weekend. Ride the RiverLink Ferry between Penn's Landing and the Camden Waterfront. The RiverLink Ferry will begin running service at 10 a.m. on Saturday, September 30. Express service will be available in the evening. The ferry will be running up to 30 minutes after the event concludes.
