Hoboken-World Trade Center PATH service resumes

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

Full PATH train service between Hoboken and World Trade Center resumed on Wednesday, three months after Superstorm Sandy devastated PATH stations and tunnels.

Storm surge completely flooded the Hoboken station.

"Restoring full PATH service to the region is possible because of the hard work of the men and women at PATH who labored 24/7 to bring this critical transit link back to life after the most devastating storm our region has ever suffered," New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie said in a statement. "PATH riders' patience, understanding and flexibility under such difficult circumstances are great examples of how the people of this region respond in the face of tragedy, and today is another major step toward returning our daily lives and routines to normal."

Newark to World Trade Center, Hoboken to World Trade Center, Journal Square to 33rd Street and Hoboken to 33rd Street will operate on regular pre-storm time tables.

Service overnight on weekdays also will return to normal, running from Newark to 33rd Street via Hoboken and Newark to World Trade Center.

Overnight service between Newark and World Trade Center was restored on Monday.

However, the Exchange Place and World Trade Center stations will stay closed on weekends in February to allow crews to continue making repairs.

The Port Authority expects overnight weekend service to return between Newark and World Trade Center in March.
