TRAVEL ADVISORY - REGULAR WEEKEND PATH SERVICE ON THE 33rd STREET LINE TO BE TEMPORARILY RESTORED FOR LABOR DAY WEEKEND

Date: Sep 01, 2016
Press Release Number: 155-2016

Weekend service suspensions, initiated in August to complete federally mandated service and safety upgrades, will resume Sept. 10

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 throughout the Labor Day weekend to accommodate high holiday ridership demand. Weekend service suspensions for construction and repair work will resume Saturday, Sept. 10 at 12:10 a.m.

On Friday, Sept. 2, the regular weekday schedule will be operational. Additional train service will be provided as necessary prior to the evening rush hours for commuters leaving early for the holiday weekend. From Saturday, Sept. 3 through Monday, Sept. 5, the 33rd Street and Newark-to-World Trade Center lines will both be operating on a holiday weekend schedule. That schedule can be accessed by going to http://www.panynj.gov/path/full-schedules.cfm, and clicking on the PATH Holiday Schedule tab.

With the 33rd Street line operating this weekend, the temporary Hoboken-to-World Trade Center PATH train will not be running during the Labor Day weekend. That service was added to ease travel burdens on riders affected by the 33rd Street line service suspension. The weekend Hoboken-WTC service will resume Saturday, Sept. 10.

Also, free weekend shuttle buses available in Manhattan as a travel option for affected PATH riders traveling between WTC and West 29th Street will be suspended this weekend, given that the 33rd Street line will be operational. The bus service also will resume as a weekend alternative on Sept. 10.
