article makes me appreciate PATH and the subway more...maybe fares should be raised to make necessary improvements?

Not only should fares rise, but they should add a peak-hour premium to whatever is needed to reduce overcrowding and to encourage folks to go a half hour earlier or later. Unpopular opinion, but PATH is a fraction of the costs associated with driving.

Only true when considering a single commuter. For two people, driving can be about the same cost as the combined round trip cost of PATH and subway fare for two people, which is close to $24.

Heck, once warmer weather arrives, a single person can do his/her commute for less than PATH and subway fare when commuting by motorcycle, which is incredibly cheap and efficient.
