What is the status of public transportation in Hoboken?

PATH station in Hoboken NJ remains closed after Hurricane Sandy - Transportation Updates

Got a few emails today from residents who seemed to have been a bit confused about the PATH train status. Reminder: It will not reopen here in Hoboken for at least a few weeks!

Meanwhile – if you insist on the PATH – you can walk over to Newport, or take the NJ Transit Light Rail.

Here’s a map of the current active PATH service:

This ferry service does not normally operate between Hoboken Terminal and 39th Street in Manhattan. Customers wishing to access this new ferry service can purchase round-trip fare for $10. A special ticket booth at Hoboken Terminal has been established for customers starting on Monday. Note: CASH ONLY – and ROUND TRIP ONLY.

So why is ferry service to Wold Financial (5 minute boat trip) still $12 round-trip?? And, that’s $12 WITHOUT free shuttle service! Not to mention, for those working in lower Manhattan, the ferry is essentially our ONLY option now. The restored Path train and buses all go to midtown.

Following 9-11 NY Waterway offered reduced rates for those of us trying to get to Lower Manhattan. Why are we being left out now? It’s not like lower Manhattan isn’t suffering as a result of Sandy (and more so than Midtown). Last week I was paying $12/day to come to office that still had no heat for godsakes.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
