Press Release Number: 205-2014

The Port Authority is advising PATH customers about delays in service to and from its 33rd Street Station due to a work train derailment that occurred early this morning. There were no injuries resulting from the incident.

PATH trains will operate every 30 minutes between the Journal Square and 33rd Street stations until the derailed work car can be removed. In addition, PATH will not operate service between Hoboken and 33rd Street. Instead, Hoboken customers can take a shuttle train to Newport Station, where they could board a train to uptown line stations.

To mitigate the inconvenience, the Port Authority reopened one of PATH's Newark to World Trade Center Line tunnels which have been closed for maintenance and that tunnel will be fully operational for the rest of the weekend.
