  • PATH, LIRR Resume More Services as Storm Repairs Continue
    Updated On: Nov 14, 2012

    On November 13, 2012, the Port Authority Trans-Hudson (PATH) resumed service at the 9th Street Station in Manhattan, New York Govenor Andrew Cuomo and New Jersey Govenor Chris Christie announced.

    The station opened to ease overcrowding at the 14th Street Station during morning peak hours. Commuters have faced longer than normal commute times as rail and transit service has been gradually restored in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy.

    PATH's temporary line now will include stops at Newark, Harrison, Journal Square, Grove Street and Newport stations in New Jersey, and at the 9th, 14th, 23rd and 33rd Street stations in Manhattan.

    PATH service remains suspended at the Hoboken, Exchange Place and World Train Center stations as recovery efforts continue. Because of significant damage caused by flooding in PATH tunnels and at multiple stations, it will take several weeks before service will be resumed on the Newark-World Trade Center line and the lines to and from Hoboken station, the governors said in a joint statement.

    Meanwhile, MTA Long Island Rail Road (LIRR) will resume limited weekday train service between Long Beach and Lynbrook starting today, marking the first time trains will run to the city of Long Beach since the hurricane knocked out third-rail power to the entire beach.

    LIRR will use diesel trains that don't require third-rail power to provide service to the Long Beach Branch, LIRR officials said in a prepared statement.
