PATH resumes 24/7 service on some routes

Posted: Updated:

NEWARK, N.J. (AP) -- PATH trains are resuming around-the-clock service on some lines for the first time since Superstorm Sandy.

Port Authority officials say starting Wednesday trains will run 24-hours, 7 days a week, from Newark to 33rd Street, via Hoboken.

PATH trains will still run from 5 a.m. to 10 p.m. during the week on the Hoboken to 33rd Street, Journal Square to 33rd Street and Newark to World Trade Center lines.

Officials say it could be late February before they receive a shipment of replacement parts necessary to restoring service on the line between Hoboken and the World Trade Center.

Salt water flooded the Hoboken tunnels during Sandy, shorting out electrical system and corroding equipment. Officials say many of the parts were decades old and replacements are coming from a third-party manufacturer.

    The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey is holding its monthly board meeting, two days after it heard from a panel on what it needs to do to improve its accountability and efficiency and restore public trust.
    The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey could rescind a $1-a-year lease for a park-and-ride lot near the Lincoln Tunnel. The agency's chief of real estate and development told a committee Wednesday that it should change a deal made in 2012. Published reports have alleged that former Port Authority chairman David Samson voted to approve the lease even though his law firm did business with New Jersey Transit, which operates the park-and-ride lot.
