NJ Transit Cross-Honoring PATH Tickets On Light Rail
Starting Monday, commuters can use PATH tickets on the Light Rail between Hoboken and Newport stations.
The Port Authority says PATH service from Hoboken Terminal will continue to be suspended for several more weeks, having sustained $300 million in damage.
In the meantime, NJ Transit will accomodate commuters who've been travelling to Newport for PATH trains.
Starting Monday, December 3, riders will be able to use PATH tickets on the Hudson-Bergen Light Rail between the Hoboken and Newport stations.
Rides will be free for all Hoboken passengers who get on at 9th Street, 2nd Street or Hoboken Terminal and go directly to Newport.
Mayor Dawn Zimmer said in a statement she hopes it'll "make commutes a little bit easier during this difficult time."
Those who've been bicycling to Newport will also find additional bike parking.
The waterfront walkway that connects Hoboken and Jersey City will be closed this weekend for construction work by Spectra Energy.
A free, 24-hour shuttle service will be provided from Friday at 8 p.m. until Monday at 5 a.m. The shuttle will make stops at Hoboken Terminal, 14th Street and Washington Blvd. in Jersey City and the Newport PATH station and run every 20 minutes.
