PATCO will suspend commuter rail service between Camden and Philadelphia for up to 12 hours Sunday morning for emergency track repairs on the Ben Franklin Bridge.

Beginning at 12:01 a.m. Sunday until noon Sunday, PATCO trains will not operate between the Broadway station in Camden and the Eighth and Market station in Philadelphia.

Shuttle buses will be provided at the Broadway and Eighth/Market stations to carry passengers across the bridge, PATCO officials said Friday.

During the 12-hour-period, PATCO train service will continue to run between the Lindenwold and Broadway stations in New Jersey and between the 16th Street and the Eighth & Market Street stations in Philadelphia.
