Hoboken's PATH Station Closed for Several More Weeks
A cheaper ferry fare of $5 will be instated this week, to ease the commute back and forth to Manhattan.
While parts of the PATH system are back up and running, Hoboken's station suffered so much damage during Sandy that it will remain for several more weeks, the city announced on Sunday.
A new ferry option will run from the Hoboken Terminal to 39th Street, for $5 a trip.
Trains run every day between 5 a.m. and 10 p.m.
The PATH is running from 33rd Street to Journal Square and to Newark. The World Trade Center station remains closed as well.
According to a release from the Governor's office: "NJ Transit customers will now be able to take a bus to the Hoboken Ferry Terminal and then transfer to a ferry that will take passengers to Pier 79 at 39th street in Manhattan. The fare is $5 and ferries will run back and forth between Hoboken and Manhattan from 6 a.m. – 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. to 8 p.m., Monday thru Friday. Free shuttle buses will be provided from Pier 79 to midtown Manhattan."
Hoboken commuters who travel by PATH can also choose to take the train from Newport — about a 15 minute walk from the Hoboken Terminal.
