The results are summarized here of a survey of the travel characteristics of the New Jersey boarding passengers of the Port Authority Trans-Hudson (PATH) system (a rail rapid system which connects downtown Manhattan with certain New Jersey communities). Both rail transferees and local boarders were considered in the study. Details are given of the passenger volumes, origins and destinations, station to station movements, trip characteristics, passenger characteristics, and characteristics at individual stations. The studies revealed such aspects as: on a typical weekday 75,630 passengers boarded PATH at 7 New Jersey stations. Forty seven percent of the riders took a railroad to the PATH station; three out of 4 disembarkers walked to their final destination; the trips were predominately work-related; and nearly 60% of the passengers began using PATH before 1971, and 24% before 1963.
