Date: May 05, 2015
Press Release Number: 67-2015

Agency marks another milestone for the WTC Transportation Hub

On Thursday, May 7, the Port Authority will open Platform B for the approximately 50,000 average weekday PATH riders at the World Trade Center Transportation Hub. This will mark another milestone in the construction of the Hub with the opening of a second new platform that will serve the Newark to World Trade Center line.

PATH riders who currently use Platform C for Newark and Journal Square service will now utilize the newly completed Platform B featuring new lighting, speakers, illuminated signs and elevators. To date, the Port Authority has opened Platform A as well as the West Concourse linking the WTC Transportation Hub and Brookfield Place. In the coming weeks, the agency will continue to open significant portions of the Hub, providing customers with additional access points that will improve transportation connections for those who live, work and visit Lower Manhattan.
