Letter to PATH Riders


July 7, 2017

Dear PATH Riders,

We understand the region is about to endure a painful summer with adjusted rail service as New York Penn Station undergoes necessary infrastructure renewal work. While PATH recognizes the importance of state-of-good-repair work for all railroads, we also understand that you and thousands of fellow customers will experience an inconvenient commute this summer. 

PATH is here to help.  We’ve partnered with NJ TRANSIT to cross honor Morris & Essex line Midtown Direct customers from 6am-2am Monday-Friday for the duration of these service adjustments, starting July 10 at our Hoboken, 33rd Street, and World Trade Center Stations.

We are taking proactive measures to keep our trains running safely and efficiently.  We’ve made adjustments to be able to temporarily increase service along the Hoboken-33rd St. line during rush hours, where trains will run every five minutes instead of every seven.  Customers will see an increase in police presence, and we’ve stationed maintenance personnel out in the field for longer periods of time to more quickly resolve any unexpected operational issues that may come up. 

PATH Ambassadors, identified by yellow vests, will also be in PATH stations to assist customers with questions, directions and cross honoring. 

We recognize that with additional ridership comes additional crowding, and while we are confident our system will support this increase in ridership, we encourage all of our riders to consider their best travel options this summer.

I encourage all customers to check our website for more information: www.panynj.gov/TheUpdate,  and to sign up for PATHAlerts at www.PAalerts.com to stay up to date on the latest service information.

We appreciate your patience and your patronage.
