TRAVEL ADVISORY - FULL WEEKEND SERVICE TO BE RESTORED AS SCHEDULED TO PATH’S 33rd STREET LINE, STARTING CHRISTMAS EVE

Date: Dec 08, 2016
Press Release Number: 237-2016

The Journal Square-33rd Street PATH line via Hoboken, closed on weekends since August to accommodate the installation of federally mandated service and safety upgrades, will resume full weekend service starting Christmas Eve.

The final weekend of service suspension, which has enabled PATH to install new state-of-the-art communications, signal and federally mandated safety systems on the 33rd Street line, will run from 12:10 a.m. Saturday, December 17 through 5 a.m. on Monday, December 19. The line will also be out of service this weekend during the same time period.

Direct weekend Hoboken-World Trade Center service, which was introduced to minimize ridership impacts during the service outages, will be available the next two weekends while service is suspended, but is to be discontinued on weekends starting December 24, as originally planned.

The shuttle buses PATH has offered during the weekend outages to passengers traveling from the WTC to West 29th Street will be running this weekend and on Saturday/Sunday, December 17-18, but will also be discontinued once full weekend service is restored to the 33rd Street line.
