TRAVEL ADVISORY - PATH SERVICE ADJUSTMENTS PLANNED FOR THIS WEEKEND TO ACCOMMODATE WORK ON NEW SAFETY AND SIGNAL EQUIPMENT

Date: Sep 08, 2017
Press Release Number: 164-2017

Between 9 a.m. and 11 p.m. this Sunday, September 10, PATH customers originating in Newark and Harrison who normally transfer at Journal Square for the train to 33rd Street via Hoboken will instead need to transfer at Grove Street to continue their trip. Journal Square customers traveling to Hoboken or 33rd Street must board the Newark-World Trade Center line and transfer at Grove Street for the uptown train.

During this time period, for passengers from 33rd Street and Hoboken who normally transfer at Journal Square for the Newark-WTC line, they will need to transfer at Grove Street.

On Monday, September 11 between 12:30 a.m. and 4:15 a.m., service will be limited system-wide. Trains will run every 70 minutes rather than the usual 35 minutes during this period on the Newark-WTC and Journal Square-33rd Street via Hoboken lines.

The scheduled changes on both days are needed for work on new signal software testing for PATH’s Automatic Train Control (ATC) program to improve passenger safety and train efficiency. In an effort to ease more burdensome system disruptions, PATH implemented a plan to operate trains at 70-minute intervals in the early morning hours on Monday rather than have to take tracks out of service for longer periods of time on weekends.

Customers should allow extra travel time and listen to station and in-train announcements. Check train destination signs before boarding.
