I'm always happy to pile on the PA. but for what its worth my PATH alert came thru a good 20 minutes before my 4:34pm NotifyNYC alert. gave me plenty of time to change directions and hit the ferry.

Yet another opportunity to point out the ineptness of the Port Authority and their inability to keep us advised of what's happening on PATH - I work for a NYC government agency, and we got a text/e-mail advisory of this around 4:30(?) pm, LONG before the PATH e-mail alert went out. And the PATH e-mail "advisory" didn't say anything about the service suspension, just that PATH tickets were being cross-honored.

Can the Port Authority possibly suck more?

I bought $40 PATH card and it was instantly eaten by machine. My receipt showed $54 on it. Called them at the stalls and it's been 9 weeks later - still no sign of reimbursement.

Very true. The advisory said nothing about the problem. I actually read about it on NJ.Com before I even got the advisory as well. PA advisories real do blow......

An actual explanation? What is this sorcery?

Why can't they just run single track like they do at night?

At least you know it is due to police activity so that narrows it down a bit.

PATH system restored after five-hour shut down
Sunday, November 13, 2011, 11:46 AM
By James Queally/The Star-Ledger

JERSEY CITY — PATH service has been restored after an electrical fire near the Journal Square train station in Jersey City knocked out all PATH train lines in New York and New Jersey for nearly five hours, officials said.

While the fire was extinguished quickly and caused no injuries, the incident caused signal malfunctions for all PATH trains operating between Newark and New York City around 8 p.m., said Port Authority spokesman Ron Marsico, forcing transit officials to shut down PATH service for safety reasons.

At 1:15 a.m., PATH service had been "fully restored," according to an e-mail from Marsico.

NJ Transit was cross-honoring PATH tickets at Newark-Penn Station and New York-Penn Station, according to Marsico.
Passengers were able to be unloaded at nearby stations after the fire, Marsico said, but the signal malfunctions made it unsafe for engineers to continue to operate PATH engines.

I waited for about 2 hrs on the 33rd St station till this good samaritan black dude told us there are no trains in all direction. It's suspended. When I got to Journal Sq to hail a cab back to downtown, they closed off the concourse level locked.It looked like a ghost town down there.
Now, I heard from one of my cab share riders Path Trains will be suspended till Monday!

Just curious was the fatso dressed in security guard blue or customer service red ? The security guards just keep things from happening by informing the powers that be and the customer service folks tell us train riding customers what is occuring.

It was a nightmare.


It is super-aggravationg when PATH personnel just let passengers stand around for ages without telling us what's going on. (And this happens all. the. time.)

That said, I'm not sure the size or race of the people involved has any damn thing to do with the situation. I guess you're just a stickler for details?

A former friend asked me for a ride to his job at the theater, so I said sure. I assumed he meant the Loews in JSQ. He gets in the car and tells me he has to go to St. Marks. Seriously? I probably could have made some money if I had picked up some people at Grove.

Goind to the Port Authority was the 2nd nightmare.
The long @ss line to hoboken was jawdropping. Poor Hoboken riders the Port Authority kept making mistakes which gate to go. While the Jersey City riders were pretty ok with our gate. Watching the Hoboken riders mad dash to the supposed gate was like the keystone cops movies. We all felt sorry for them.
Then Jersey city riders waited a long @ss 2 hours for our bus while we watched Hoboken's 126 Bus kept coming in every 15 mins!

When I got to Journal Sq to hail a cab back to downtown, they closed off the concourse level locked.It looked like a ghost town down there.

Now, I heard from one of my cab share riders Path Trains will be suspended till Monday!

what is going on the PATH? ANOTHER signal problem? What are we paying fare increases for if this train is almost always delayed or the same "signal" problems keep cropping up? Sat nite and NO trains at all? Maybe the execs should get docked everytime this happens -- put the money into the damn signals.

Due to a signal problem, ALL PATH train service is temporarily suspended.

I agree my biggest decision is whether to sit or stand. If you sit you run the risk of someone being jerked around themselves and collapsing onto you and crushing your knee caps. Standing well that is why this thread is posted. I also do not like the air conditioner ducts they are too forward and have two vent areas which means even if you sit or stand you still get a draft of air constantly on top of your head.


Sit or Stand? I'm lucky to even get a seat during rush hour. I've seen people fight over a seat on more than one occasion. They pack people in like sardines. I luckily get on at 33rd on the way home and even then you are lucky to get a seat. Forget about it if your stop is 23rd or closer to JC. No way in hell you are getting a seat.

Actually Ianmac is correct. Around 2000 or 2001 I had done a story about NJ Transit and the Path for my college paper...and the officials i spoke to said that the Path trains were obsolete and already too old and torn to be still be in use. The new trains were suppose to be in place no more than 5 years from that time.

I do believe with infrastructure and transportation people need to think long term. Christie has not done so. He killed the ARC project. I saw his point but why not reform the project instead of killing it outright? Why not go after the PA and reform it? Because it is a big patronage mill and Christie like all before him rather use it. I am still ticked about his lies about the toll increase....the whole thing was an act.

Some might not agree but during the economic mess we are in...proper infrastructure and transportation investment for the long term....is worth the money and would definitely produce good jobs.

It was a terrible decision to use the hundreds of millions of dollars to buy new trains instead of using those funds to improve the infrastructure/signals, which are ancient.



The trains were falling to pieces. The new ones were as necessary as anything else. In fact most of those trains probably should have been replaced a decade ago.

Which is not to say the signals shouldn't have been upgraded a decade sooner too. But basically the Port Authority has been concentrating on spending a billion dollars in Manhattan.

Weak New Jersey governors over the last decade have failed to exert enough influence over the Port Authority to ensure an investment on this side of the river. But like all cycles, eventually New Jersey will have a strong governor again and the pendulum will swing back in our favor.

yeah the path should really plan the schedule out better. Lots of people going on the WTC line will need to be at work before the markets open, thus all WTC trains are packed till then. At 8am, the 33rd trains are probably at 65% capacity...

Are you kidding me? I'm a WTC girl, and Wednesday morning at 7:35, 3 33rd St trains came in a row, one was COMPLETELY empty, as if it was just going into service, and then finally the WTC train came and it was packed. Crazy, if you ask me!

I am just a little confused. At 9:15 this morning 3 WTC trains come one after another. Now most mornings the WTC has so much room and seats everywhere. Now I am a 33rd street guy. Never a seat and always packed. Why not more 33rd trains? Of course then there is the "No Passengers" ghost train. Crazy if you ask me.

What in the bloody H was up with the train this morning? Insanity at Grove Street from 9:30 until at least 10:15... I let three 33rd St trains go by when they finally started coming.
