Active Fleet

All of PATCO’s current fleet was rebuilt by Alstom into what is now known as PATCO III cars. They were originally built by Budd and Canadian Vickers in 1968-1970 as PATCO I and PATCO II cars. Most of which were single-ended cars. All cars sport modern interiors with interior TV screens, modern automatic announcements, and modern seats. All exterior signs were replaced with modern LED display signs.
