PATH WTC STATION TO REMAIN OPEN THIS WEEKEND IN ANTICIPATION OF INCREASED RIDERSHIP DUE TO WORLD PRIDE EVENTS

Date: Jun 27, 2019
Press Release Number: 110-2019

The PATH World Trade Center station will remain open this weekend, as PATH suspends weekend tunnel repairs necessitated by Superstorm Sandy between the World Trade Center and Exchange Place stations in anticipation of increased ridership due to World Pride events in New York City and New Jersey.

The WTC station is closing on most weekends during 2019 and 2020 for major tunnel repairs, including replacement of PATH track, third rail, electrical, signal and communications infrastructure, to make the system safer and more reliable.
