The Official PATH thread

Recommended Posts

I don't see a PATH forum, and technically PATH is not NJT, so I'm not sure.

 

Anyway, I heard that PATH is getting a fare increase to $2.50. It's interesting that their monthly pass will be $80 as opposed to the (MTA)'s $112, though they don't have buses to worry about.

How is it NJT's fault when NJT and PATH are separate operations? Please explain

No, the New Jersey Transit forum is not the place to discuss Port Authority Trans-Hudson line topics. There is a "Regional Transit Systems" forum for that purpose.

He's saying buses are NJT's problem, not PATH.

I checked Regional Transit Systems First.

Why does the WTC Path station have 3 platforms(1 unused)? And why does the WTC-NWK use only one track while WTC-HOB used two tracks??

I have seen people's pictures of path during the photo ban, but how seriously do they enforce it? Is it more serious near the PATH station at WTC. I don't think it makes sense because people plotting can take pictures of the new and amazing WTC. Then tourists can't take pictures of it. The rule makes no sense.

Tourists can take pictures outside the PATH station and PAPD obviously won't care. Take pics in the station, any station, and you will be dealing with the PAPD. The "rules of conduct" signs say violating them is an arrestable offense in NY and NJ.

 

Keep in mind that photography is actually allowed in some PA facilities, including the airports and WTC site itself, but whether or not it's allowed the PAPD will probably give you a hard time for it except of course at the WTC site outside the station.

 

You can risk it like I have (and gotten away with it) plenty of times, but you've been warned what can happen. If you try it use a small point and shoot or phone camera and don't say in the same spot for too long, but again you've been warned.

.... and let me guess, those rules were established in the name of protecting citizens against 'terrorist threats'  <_<  That being said what I have to say about it? The PAPD can suck many .....

Well, from my understanding, the ban was there prior to 9-11, but was not strictly enforced as it is now.

I have taken photos in  the PATH network and never had any problems, even talked to a PAPD officer at NWR told him I was a railfan from Canada, told me to have a nice day.

quote from the Path website

"The Signal System Replacement program is a key component to the modernization of PATH. This integrated program will ensure the long-term viability of PATH by bringing it into the 21st Century using the latest technology and continuing to provide customers with reliable and safe service. This new signal system will allow PATH trains to safely run closer together, increasing the number of trains we can fit on the system during peak times. Over the past few years, the Board authorized projects for the replacement of the entire PATH Signal System with a modern Automatic Train Control System (ATC) using communications-based train control technology. PATH staff is diligently working with the Signal Contractor and has currently completed Final Design Reviews. This project is scheduled for completion in 2015"

 

I didn't know they were doing ATC.

I remember one time when I was heading out to help on S89 during S89 week debut, I met with PANY&NJ C/O on PATH train who knows me.

Lots of regular PATH riders doesn't seem to know taking photography is illegal on PATH, including news reporter Greg Mocker.

Remember when he had NYC Subway's Ugliest Subway Contest?

They started looking into it when the Lackawanna tracks were changed to allow that NJ Transit division access to Penn Station. So much trackage was ripped up and replaced that area in the Harrison- Secuscus yards don't look anything as it did 20 years ago. Right now only a very small portion of the system engages with regular rail at this time and when they remove and replace that the system can use atc fully.

I know right? We railfans just want to take photos and videos of trains. We aren't terrorists!

Question: are you allowed to use a Metrocard in the system? I'm confused...

It must be a regular pay-per-ride Metrocard. Unlimited, disabled, and senior cards will NOT work.

Hey, a question about the PA-1 through PA-4 cars: does anyone here know what happened to the cars after they were retired?

Most were scrapped. Some saved for work car use and museums
