Letter: After Sandy, PATH caters to NYC and not New Jersey

The PATH system isn’t just for those who travel to New York City. One Hoboken411 gripes about the lack of westbound service during the week.

Do you also share their frustrations?

“I know I’m probably one of the many commuters in Hoboken who is still feeling the effects of Hurricane Sandy.

Recently, the PATH was refunding people who had active passes during the Hurricane, so I reached out and was told that my pass was not “active” according to their system. I’ve sent multiple screen shots to SmartLink stressing concerns, and the feedback that I received was negative.

The PATH is still not running to the WTC which means getting to Newark has been more of a hassle. First they told us to walk to Newport which adds onto our commute, than they offered the LightRail to be free for the weeks in December when everyone is on vacation, now they are telling us to take the PATH to Christopher Street and than come back into Jersey to go to Hoboken or Newark.

They are showing no remorse for any of us, they were all too worried about how people who live in Hoboken will get to NY, never worried about people who live in Hoboken and work in Jersey.”
