For our March Showcase photo, we continue our journey across the US. Where to next you ask?
This month’s destination is New York City – but I’m not profiling the MTA this time. It’s time to give the PATH some limelight. I took the above photo during my 2017 New York City transit excursion.
The PATH (Port Authority Trans-Hudson) subway system originated from its predecessor – the Hudson & Manhattan Railroad – & was originally envisioned to be much larger than it is today, but budgetary, political, & other constraints stifled every possibility of the network realizing its full potential. Nonetheless, the PATH line are an integral part of the overall regional transit network in New York City & surrounding areas.
PATH service operates seven days a week with frequent service during the day on weekdays & less service on weekends & overnights. There are two service branches – the Newark/World Trade Center branch & the Newport/Hoboken/Midtown Manhattan branch. Service patterns vary between weekday daytime & weekday evening/weekends/holidays. The current service pattern, schedules, & service advisories are available on the Port Authority of New York & New Jersey website.
