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.
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.
