Round the Clock PATH Service Restored
The Port Authority announced the restoration of 24/7 service. The Hoboken-WTC line remains suspended for now.
For the first time since Hurricane Sandy last fall, PATH service will be 24/7, according to an announcement from the Port Authority on Wednesday morning.
As of Wednesday night, PATH trains will again be running between the hours of 10 p.m. and 5 a.m.
The round the clock service has been restored on the Hoboken to 33rd Street line, Newark to World Trade Center Line and the Journal Square to 33rd Street line.
Service between Hoboken and the World Trade Center remains suspended for now and could take at least another month.
"Currently, the Port Authority is awaiting delivery of key switch and signal parts from a third-party manufacturer," the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey stated in its press release on Wednesday.
The Hoboken PATH station sustained heavy damage during Hurricane Sandy and equipment of multiple decades old was completely destroyed.
"The agency expects delivery of the parts in late February," according to the announcement, "crews will then install the parts and conduct extensive safety tests before PATH can resume service between Hoboken and World Trade Center."
PATH service was restored in Hoboken in mid-December. Since the storm, trains have been running between 5 a.m. and 10 p.m. every day.
