Agency Offers the Second PATH Education Series

PATH will host its second educational forum, focusing on the rail system's scheduling process, on Wednesday, Oct. 7, from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Barrow Mansion, located at 83 Wayne Street in Jersey City, NJ, within walking distance of the Grove Street PATH station.

Presented by Kevin Lejda, PATH's Assistant Superintendant, the "Service Planning & Scheduling," session will give an overview of the PATH system, and participants will also learn about service scheduling, the number of trains on each line, current limitations and capacity, as well as the integrated railcar and signal replacement program. Registration is required.

"The PATH Education Series (PES) provides insight from senior management as to what it takes to run the PATH system," said Stephen Kingsberry, PATH's director and general manager. "Riders can gain an understanding of the causes for delays, capacity issues, the need to change weekend schedules, as well as the challenges we face when making decisions. Our goal is to connect with our riders, so they can gain a higher confidence in PATH."

Enrollment for these public sessions will be available on a first-come, first-served basis with priority given to registrants who have never participated in a PES session. To register, please visit the PES website at: http://www.panynj.gov/path/pes.html.
