Some 24/7 PATH Train Service To Resume
Wednesday, January 09, 2013 - 04:21 PM
For the first time in the 70-plus days since Hurricane Sandy, some PATH lines are resuming partial around-the-clock operations.
Governors Chris Christie and Andrew Cuomo say starting Wednesday, trains will run 24-7, from Newark to 33rd Street, via Hoboken.
PATH has operated on a 5 a.m. to 10 p.m. schedule – with the exception of New Year’s Eve – since the storm. The system suffered catastrophic damage from an estimated 10 million gallons of water that flooded the tunnels.
PATH trains will still run from 5 a.m. to 10 p.m. during the week on the Hoboken to 33rd Street, Journal Square to 33rd Street and Newark to World Trade Center lines.
Port Authority officials say it could be late February before they receive a shipment of replacement parts necessary to restoring service on the line between Hoboken and the World Trade Center, which is still not operational.
