Service on all PATH lines has resumed with residual delays on the Journal Square to 33rd and Newark to World Trade Center lines after service was suspended earlier this morning for approximately 90 minutes due to a broken rail west of the Grove Street Station in Jersey City.

At approximately 8:30 a.m., the Hoboken to World Trade and Hoboken to 33rd Street and Journal Square to World Trade and Journal Square to 33rd Street lines were temporarily suspended to accommodate a temporary fix. Resumption of service on all lines occurred around 10 a.m. NJ Transit cross-honored service for PATH during the shutdown. PATH communicated the situation to passengers in trains, on platforms, via e-alerts and Twitter. NJ Transit was itself subject to delays on trans-Hudson service. PATH services for the evening commute are expected to be normal.
