Free PATH Rides Monday to Mark 100th Anniversary

The PATH commuter rail system is celebrating its 100th anniversary by giving passengers a reason to rejoice, too.

They can ride the cross-Hudson trains for free from 6 a.m. to 11 p.m. Monday.

The system carries an average of 227,000 passengers each weekday between Manhattan and northern New Jersey. Those numbers are expected to rise by 25 percent over the next decade.

I don’t open my purse the little card holder is attached on the outside with a carabiner. When I swap the purse for a backpack I just move it to the strap of the backpack.

A woman went into labor on the train? I always find this weird. Babies don’t just pop out…I mean, without being graphic, it takes a lot of pain to get to the point where you can physically give birth. This woman must have been clueless to be riding on the train in active labor.

Did anyone hear about the woman who went into labor on the train on free ticket day? That sounds like a setup for a joke, but it isn’t.

I heard 2 of the conductors talking about it. Apparently halfway between NY and Hoboken the baby decided it was time…

I wonder if she’ll name him Teddy?

Re 20 — thanks, but the process of getting the money back is more trouble than it’s worth, and I don’t feel like having to answer questions about how I lost it 3 times in the past 3 months already. I’d rather just write off the $5 when I lose the low-value Metrocard.

[quote comment=”70106″]I will never get the Smart Link. I work in a bad neighborhood and like to keep my wallet in a hidden inner pocket and my Path/Metrocard(s) in an easy-to-reach-quickly outer pocket. The trouble with that is that I lose the cards pretty frequently; enough that I rarely put more than $20 at a time on the Metrocard, and usually just $10.[/quote]

I do something like that. I have a small credit card sized thing on keyring attached to the strap of my purse, it has outside sleeve that my metrocard lives in. Have not lost one since I started using it.
