N.J. PATH resumes service to new WTC station

Posted on November 24, 2003

Weekday PATH service between New Jersey and the World Trade Center resumed Monday for the first time since the station was crushed in the rubble of the twin towers on Sept. 11. The $323 million station, which was officially inaugurated on Sunday with a ceremonial train ride by New York City Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg among others, saw its first flood of passengers for the Monday morning rush of commuters moving between lower Manhattan and New Jersey, according to the Associated Press. The new steel and pale concrete hub, called World Trade Center PATH Station, is temporary and will give way to a $2 billion transit hub set to open in 2006. Workers installed nearly 7,000 feet of new track to bring PATH service back to the trade center site, said the AP. The station is expected to accommodate up to 50,000 passengers a day. Trains, which now travel to the heart of ground zero's pit, give passengers a brief, but arresting glimpse of the site's foundation, said the news service.
