Starting tonight Newark to 33rd St. on PATH is a 24/7 kind of thing

Baby steps.

Little by little and bit by bit the PATH system is resuming the natural order of things and tonight it'll be an all night kind of affair. The Port Authority said these words:

PATH has operated on a 5 a.m. to 10 p.m. schedule – with the exception of New Year’s Eve – since Superstorm Sandy devastated the system. After saltwater from the storm surge destroyed critical switching and signal equipment, PATH limited operations in order to provide uninterrupted work hours for repairs to major segments of the system.

Starting tonight, service will resume between the hours of 10 p.m. and 5 a.m. seven days a week from Newark to 33rd Street, via Hoboken. Additional stops will include Harrison, Journal Square, Grove Street, and Newport in New Jersey and Christopher Street, 9th Street, 14th Street, and 23rd Street in Manhattan. This line also will be in operation on weekends, beginning 10 p.m. Friday night until 5 a.m. Monday morning.

Weekday service between 5 a.m. and ten p.m. will be available on three lines, Hoboken to 33rd Street, Journal Square to 33rd Street and Newark to World Trade Center.

Got all that? Good because there will be a quiz.
