PATH service resumes from Newark to Midtown Monday

Posted: Updated:
MYFOXNY.COM -

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie and New York Governor Andrew Cuomo today announced that PATH rail service will resume at the Newark Penn and Harrison stations in New Jersey to 33rd Street in New York starting Monday at 5:00 a.m.  

Trains will run in both directions until 10:00 p.m. between Newark Penn and 33rd Street. 

The temporary line also will include stops at Journal Square, Grove Street, and Newport stations in New Jersey and at the 14th, 23rd and 33rd Street stations in Manhattan. Trains will bypass Christopher and 9th streets in New York.  

Disabled passengers will have access to the platforms only at Newark, Journal Square and 33rd Street. 

PATH service remains suspended at the Hoboken, Exchange Place and the World Trade Center stations as recovery efforts continue. Port Authority officials say it will be several weeks before resumption of service on the Newark-World Trade Center line and the lines to and from Hoboken station because of the significant damage from the flooding in the PATH tunnels and multiple stations.

Officials said passengers may experience extended waits and potential delays until service returns to normal. To reduce crowding at station ticket vending machines, passengers can opt to purchase SmartLink cards with pre-funded trips. 

Port Authority and NJ Transit will start providing additional mass transit options from Hoboken to Manhattan and will begin operating a new ferry service from the Hoboken Ferry Terminal on Monday. 

NJ Transit customers will now be able to take a bus to the Hoboken Ferry Terminal and then transfer to a ferry that will take passengers to Pier 79 at 39th street in Manhattan. The fare is $5 and ferries will run back and forth between Hoboken and Manhattan from 6 a.m. - 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. to 8 p.m., Monday thru Friday. Free shuttle buses will be provided from Pier 79 to midtown Manhattan.
