PATH trains will only operate on the Newark to World Trade Center line for the next two weekends.

The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey said the move is designed to give crews 48-hours of uninterrupted time to work on the restoration of the Hoboken line.

The trains will operate from 5 a.m. to 10 p.m. only from Newark to World Trade Center the weekends of Dec. 8 and 9 and Dec. 15 and 16.

Shuttle service will operate between Hoboken and Newport.

Also NJ TRANSIT will increase its weekend light rail service, which will bring riders to the Exchange Place PATH station, where they also can access the Newark-WTC line. NJ TRANSIT will honor PATH tickets on the light rail, so there will be no extra service costs for riders.

Port Authority officials said the move could shave five or more days off the schedule for restoring the Hoboken PATH.

Officials said last week that restoring the Hoboken line could take weeks. It was heavily damaged during Superstorm Sandy.

    The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey is holding its monthly board meeting, two days after it heard from a panel on what it needs to do to improve its accountability and efficiency and restore public trust.
    The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey could rescind a $1-a-year lease for a park-and-ride lot near the Lincoln Tunnel. The agency's chief of real estate and development told a committee Wednesday that it should change a deal made in 2012. Published reports have alleged that former Port Authority chairman David Samson voted to approve the lease even though his law firm did business with New Jersey Transit, which operates the park-and-ride lot.
