You Shall Not PATH - My9 New Jersey

You Shall Not PATH

Posted: Updated:
Jersey City, New Jersey (My9NJ) - The Port Authority is shutting down a major PATH line on weekends for a whole year and while local politicians are fuming about the unexpected and abrupt news, some PATH riders are just as mad.

Jersey City resident Dori Gray is furious with the Port Authority over the Exchange Place to World Trade Center line shutdown.

“I moved to Jersey City to save money on rent and to get more amenities and because it’s so easy to get back into Manhattan. I go into Manhattan many times a week, I go in every weekend and a big part of the reason I chose Jersey City is because it’s so quick and easy to get in usually,” Gray explained

Like millions of others, Gray moved across the river from Manhattan for a better quality of life in north Jersey. She says she loved living in Jersey City the past three years largely because the World Trade Center PATH line made it convenient for her to commute back and forth from the city, but not anymore.

“Now getting into Manhattan is going to take at least twice as long, on a more crowded train, and it’s just not even worth the hassle anymore,” Gray said.

It’s no secret that the PATH trains are already overcrowded even on weekends. Still there has been no clarification from the Port Authority on what exactly this apparent “safety equipment installation” entails and why it’s necessary to shut down Jersey’s main weekend PATH line for an entire year.
