THE REBIRTH OF A RAPID TRANSIT SYSTEM: THE REHABILITATION AND MODERNIZATION OF THE PORT AUTHORITY TRANS-HUDSON (PATH) SYSTEM
On September 1, 1962, following authorization by the New York and New Jersey Legislatures, the Port Authority acquired the old Hudson and Manhattan Railroad and renamed it PATH. PATH is a 14.2 mile rapid transit line with seven stations in New Jersey and six in New York. The two north tunnels form the midtown line, handling service between Hoboken, New Jersey and 33rd Street in New York and Jersey City, New Jersey and midtown Manhattan. The two south tunnels form the downtown line, connecting Hoboken, Jersey City and Newark, New Jersey, with Hudson Terminal near the financial district in lower Manhattan. Two stations in New Jersey serve as transfer points, tying all services together.
