LOL Then there would be no question about where to hang the Xmas Tree and the OCDers would be grappling with the next insignificant problem in their lives.

During this time, PATH service will end at Exchange Place and a free ferry transfer will be available for service between Harborside Ferry Landing in Jersey City and Brookfield Place Terminal in New York City. See below for more details.

We first got word about this almost a month ago and I am surprised by how little conversation has been generated by this announcement. The two year duration seems WAY TOO LONG, and I don't see how the ferry transfer system would work: it's not like NY Waterway has a way to verify you rode the PATH (unless they are planning to install a machine to verify your PATHcard or Metrocard were used within X amount of time, which seems super far fetched) or perhaps they intend to have a "red jacket" staff member handing out transfer chits, as it used to be done 20+ years ago?

As it is usual for the PANYNJ, the details are scant and the explanations vague.

this is where the real protest should be. not for some dumb wreath hanging over the Holland Tunnel. What can justify another 2 year closing at WTC? Is there zero accountability?

BINGO. The PATH is truly an afterthought to the PA.

While the city administration was patting itself on the back for the "deal" they negotiated with the PA for transfer of ownership of the land on which the powerhouse is located, the PA executives were laughing all the way to the bank: they got the city to agree to a two-year timetable to move the power substation equipment one measly block to the south! And, then, after the move is completed the city will supposedly bring in a developer to rehabilitate the powerhouse. It is so very doubtful there will be anything left to rehabilitate after two more years of neglect. And, of course, while this was being negotiated, the PA was planning the WTC shutdown and waited until the last minute to announce that.

Apparently, in their opinion, they can use Sandy as an excuse for eternity.

I'm so beyond upset at their ineptness / laziness / waste of money / not caring for their customers, etc. It just never ends. Every time I think they cannot do any worse, they somehow manage to surprise me. Just a-m-a-z-i-n-g!

I guess I should be used to this, but ... they’re not going to expand service on the 33rd st line? Those trains are going to be packed. This is so annoying.

World Trade Center PATH station to close on weekends through 2020

More weekend PATH station closures are on the way. This time, the service changes will last nearly two years.

The Port Authority announced that its World Trade Center PATH station will close on weekends, starting in January 2019 and continuing through December 2020. The closures are necessary to replace equipment and rebuild tunnels that were “severely damaged” in Hurricane Sandy more than six years ago.
