Riders should expect delays, higher passenger volume resulting from the New York Penn Station derailment and impact on regional travel

PATH is increasing the number of trains on its Hoboken-33rd Street and Journal Square-33rd Street lines for this afternoon’s rush to accommodate higher ridership demand, caused by yesterday’s Penn Station New York derailment and subsequent train delays and cancellations.

All PATH services have resumed normal service following equipment repairs on the Hoboken-33rd Street line near Hoboken Terminal.

PATH is cross-honoring NJ Transit customers through the evening rush hour due to the issues at New York Penn Station. Passengers should expect higher volume on all PATH trains, allow extra travel time and check train destination signs before boarding.
