Weekend service on the 33rd street line will be suspended August though December
Another major train service is set to shut down for repairs — at least in this case it’s just on the weekends. Following announced closures on the L Train, and M Train, the Port Authority announced on Thursday that it would suspend PATH service on weekends on the 33rd Street line staring August, the Jersey Journal reports.
The suspension will be in effect from 12:01 a.m. on Saturdays until 5:00 a.m. on Mondays, though the exact dates for when the service will be suspended in August haven’t been announced yet. Work will continue on the line until sometime in December.
Service on the Newark-World Trade Center line and between Journal Square and Hoboken will remain the same, and in addition Port Authority will provide direct service between Hoboken and WTC on the weekends. They will also offer shuttle buses running between WTC and 29th street along Sixth and Seventh Avenues.
The repairs are being carried out to install a new computerized signal system that will improve safety and allow for more trains during rush hour. Check out more on that in the video below.
