Here is some news that will make PATH commuters to downtown Manhattan happy….

GOVERNORS CHRISTIE AND CUOMO ANNOUNCE FULL RESTORATION OF

PATH SERVICE BETWEEN HOBOKEN AND WORLD TRADE CENTER

Restoration of service allows thousands of commuters a one-seat ride between

Hoboken and Lower Manhattan for first time since Hurricane Sandy

Hoboken PATH Train

Governors Chris Christie and Andrew Cuomo today announced that full PATH service will resume between Hoboken and World Trade Center, beginning tomorrow morning, January 30.This is the first time since Hurricane Sandy that  thousands of commuters will once again have a one-seat ride between Hoboken and Lower Manhattan.

“Restoring full PATH service to the region is possible because of the hard work of the men and women at PATH who labored 24/7 to bring this critical transit link back to life after the most devastating storm our region has ever suffered,” said Governor Chris Christie. “PATH riders’ patience, understanding and flexibility under such difficult circumstances are great examples of how the people of this region respond in the face of tragedy, and today is another major step toward returning our daily lives and routines to normal.”

“In the days following Hurricane Sandy, I toured the World Trade Center site and saw firsthand the flooded tracks of the PATH train and the unprecedented damage caused by the surge from the Hudson,” said Governor Andrew Cuomo.  “Today’s restoration of service is another testament to our ability to rebuild and recover, even in the face of incredible destruction and devastation.  I thank the Port Authority workers for the tireless efforts since the storm hit to restore service and Governor Christie for being a real partner throughout this effort.”

Today’s announcement means PATH is running normal weekday service for the first time since Superstorm Sandy devastated the system. Newark to World Trade Center, Hoboken to World Trade Center, Journal Square to 33rd Street and Hoboken to 33rd Street will operate on their regular (pre-Sandy) time tables. Service overnight on weekdays also will return to normal, running from Newark to 33rd Street via Hoboken and Newark to World Trade Center. Overnight service between Newark and World Trade Center was restored on Monday.

Exchange Place and World Trade Center Stations will remain closed weekends during the month of February to allow crews uninterrupted time to complete necessary repairs. The Port Authority expects overnight weekend service to return between Newark and World Trade Center in the month of March. At that time, all PATH service will be restored to pre-Sandy status.

PATH passengers may visit the PATH Web site at www.panynj.gov/path for service updates and to view an interactive system map that allows for easy travel planning.

Advisory: PATH Train Service to and from WTC to be Suspended Thursday 3pm-6pm

When the President of the USA visits New York City, transportation back to Hoboken for some is bound to be impacted. Read below for details….

Advisory: PATH Train Service to/from WTC to be Suspended Thursday 3pm-6pm

PATH train service to and from the World Trade Center will be suspended on Thursday, June 14 from 3pm to 6pm due to President Obama’s visit to the World Trade Center site. Below is a press release from the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey regarding the service suspension and travel alternatives.


PA WORKING TO PROVIDE ALTERNATIVES TO LOWER MANHATTAN PATH SERVICE DURING PRESIDENT OBAMA’S VISIT TO WTC SITE ON THURSDAY

Seeking to provide alternatives to afternoon commuters, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey is highlighting optional means of leaving Lower Manhattan while the World Trade Center PATH station is closed in the afternoon on Thursday, June 14 for security purposes during President Obama’s visit.

PATH service to and from the World Trade Center site is subject to suspension for an undetermined period of time roughly between 3 p.m. and 6 p.m. on Thursday. Commuters are urged to take the A, C or E subway lines from Chambers Street to Penn Station or the R subway line from the Cortlandt Street station to the 33rd Street PATH station to make their way home.

NJ Transit will cross-honor PATH tickets for trips back to New Jersey.

During the closure, PATH trains on the Newark to World Trade Center line will terminate at the Grove Street Station, allowing passengers to transfer at Journal Square or Grove Street for the PATH line to 33rd Street in Manhattan. Passengers normally using the Exchange Place station will need to make the brief walk to or from Grove Street during this time.

PATH will run as many trains as possible from Journal Square and Hoboken to 33rd Street during the closure. Additionally, trains that normally operate between the World Trade Center and Hoboken will operate between Hoboken and Journal Square during this time.

Updates on PATH service and WTC station closures will be available in real time on Thursday via Twitter, as well as PATHVision and train information screens.

Hoboken Photo of the Day – Hoboken PATH Station

Recently, the PATH made news when the Port Authority made the announcement that they were proposing a 57% fare hike for an individual PATH ride. Here is a shot of the very busy Hoboken PATH station. Some advocates wonder what affect that would have on commuter traffic. Perhaps the larger increases would result in fewer people visiting Hoboken impacting local businesses with respect to the weekend related tourism that Hoboken establishments benefit form. Share your thoughts in the comments below.

Hoboken Needs More Bike Racks

Filed under: bicycle rack,Hertz Car Sharing,Hoboken PATH,Parking — TheBoken @ 1:45 PM

As I was taking a walk around town the other day I made my way towards the PATH train area in Hoboken, NJ to see if anything was going on.  I could not help but notice the overload of bicycles locked up on the bike racks outside the PATH station.

Picture 091

Hoboken has officially turned into a bicycle friendly town, Hoboken Mayor Dawn Zimmer is a huge supporter of biking to work and events in Hoboken and feels it is important for a small city like Hoboken to have the option of biking.

All the city needs to do now is put more bike racks down by the PATH Station as the racks are overflowing during the week days.

Picture 093

We spoke to a couple of Hoboken bikers and they mentioned that with the addition of the bikes lanes and the safety increasing they have officially sold their cars and moved on to their bicycles and Hertz Corner Cars.

Do you have a bike in Hoboken?
