PATH SERVICE ON 33RD STREET LINE TO BE SUSPENDED OVER THE JANUARY 25-27 WEEKEND FOR INSTALLATION OF ESSENTIAL SIGNAL EQUIPMENT
World Trade Center Station will remain open this weekend; customers using WTC will receive complimentary 2-trip MetroCards
PATH riders this weekend will need to use the Newark-World Trade Center line for access into and out of New York City. The 33rd Street line will be closed between 12:01 a.m. Saturday, January 25 until 5 a.m. Monday, January 27 for signal-related equipment installation and relocation.
The WTC station, which is scheduled to be closed most weekends in 2020 for Superstorm Sandy-related repairs, will remain open this weekend to accommodate riders impacted by the 33rd Street line closures at Christopher, 9th, 14th, 23rd and 33rd streets.
The Newark-WTC line will be operating on its normal weekend schedule. There will be supplemental service running from Journal Square to WTC to accommodate added riders who normally use the 33rd Street line.
The Hoboken and Newport stations are closing at 12:01 Saturday, January 25 and will reopen at 8 a.m. Sunday, January 26. There will be direct service on Sunday from Hoboken to WTC, for this Sunday only. New Jersey Transit will cross-honor PATH customers Saturday into Sunday morning via the Hudson-Bergen Light Rail at Hoboken and Newport during the outage period. Cross-honoring will end at 8 a.m. Sunday.
Customers using the WTC station this weekend will receive a complimentary 2-ride MetroCard for use during the hours of service outage, to help offset the inconvenience of the 33rd Street line closure. PATH information agents and supervisors will be on hand at the WTC station to distribute the free MetroCards, which are valid for this weekend only.
The 33rd Street line and Hoboken and Newport station closures are due to the needed replacement of temporary signal equipment in the tunnels in and around the Hoboken Station with permanent equipment.
