PATH Trains to Resume Service From Hoboken, Port Authority Says

PATH trains between Hoboken and the 33rd Street station in Manhattan will resume tomorrow following almost two months of repairs of water damage from Hurricane Sandy, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey said.

Resumption of direct service between Hoboken and the World Trade Center remains several weeks away because damaged signal equipment needs to be replaced, the Port Authority said.

Hurricane Sandy on Oct. 29 decimated the PATH system, flooding the tunnels with as much as 8 feet (2.4 meters) of water and destroying critical signal and switching systems, the Port Authority said.

Trains will initially run in both directions from 5 a.m. until 10 p.m. seven days a week, the agency said. PATH expects to provide limited 24-hour service from Hoboken to 33rd Street by year-end.
