Date: Nov 09, 2016
Press Release Number: 218-2016

Temporary Hoboken-WTC weekend service suspended this weekend, will resume Saturday, Nov. 19.

The Journal Square-33rd Street PATH line via Hoboken– closed on weekends since Aug. 6 for federally mandated service and safety upgrades – will be open and operating this weekend, in recognition of Veterans Day and anticipated increases in ridership demand over the weekend. The 33rd street line weekend closures for construction and repair work will resume Saturday, Nov. 19 at 12:10 a.m.

With the 33rd Street line operating this weekend, the temporary direct weekend Hoboken-to-World Trade Center PATH line will not be running. That service was added to ease travel burdens on riders affected by the 33rd Street line service suspension. Weekend Hoboken-WTC service will resume Saturday, Nov. 19.

Free weekend shuttle bus service in Manhattan will also be suspended. That service is only offered as a travel option for affected PATH riders traveling between WTC and West 29th Street during the 33rd Street line weekend closures. The bus service will resume as a weekend alternative on Nov. 19.
