Passenger safety is one of our top priorities. Take a moment to learn more about enhanced efforts by the Port Authority Police Department to ensure the security of the PATH system.


Operation SAFE PATH

PAPD recently launched Operation SAFE PATH to enhance their security presence, including the support of both uniform and plain-clothes teams.

If you ever see something suspicious or feel you or others are in danger, you can pick up a passenger assistance phone, which are located near the turnstiles and on platforms, or call PAPD at 800-828-7273. You can also download PAPD’s Smartphone app, which allows you to connect with PAPD without having to remember the toll-free number.
