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.

Brad - the article from 2010 states that metal plates were being installed to support the structure of the tunnel so that if there were ever a "catastrophic" bombing in the PATH that the structure would remain and it wouldnt puncture a hole, allowing millions of gallons of water to flood the tunnels. I don't think this would have helped in regards to Hurriance Sandy. Does anyone have insider information on when the Hoboken path may open again? Doens't matter how you slice the bread, all means of Hobo/NYC transportation right now suck.

I live in Bayonne, NJ and I usually take the light rail to Hoboken Terminal to catch the PATH. Since that station is still closed I'm going to try and take the PATH from Newport, can anyone tell me how bad the crowding is because I take my 6 month old son with me and I definitely dont want anyone bumping into him.
