PATCO's revenue runs began on January 4, 1969, between Lindenwold and Camden City Hall. Service into Philadelphia began on February 15, 1969, so PATCO chose to celebrate Feb 15 as its 50th anniversary with a ceremony at Woodcrest, the only station with enough room to handle a small party. I left before the ceremony began.
I had to ride buses from 8th and Race to Camden when I worked at Strawbridge & Clothier at 8th & Market and attended Rutgers-Camden.
Oh, no! You had to ride "stink-buggy" buses??? Now I know why you hate them!!!!
