PATH rail service on the Journal Square-33rd Street and Hoboken to 33rd Street lines are suspended in both directions, due to a third-rail equipment issue caused by flooding from today’s heavy rains.

Workers are attempting to correct the issue and resume service on both lines as soon as possible. NJ Transit is cross-honoring PATH tickets at Newark Penn Station and New York Penn Station for customers traveling between New York and New Jersey, until the situation is resolved.
