PATH between New Jersey and Manhattan

PATH between New Jersey and Manhattan

PATH trains in new york 300x225

The PATH rail system runs from New Jersey to the heart of Manhattan. When travelling from New Jersey to Manhattan or back you can take the PATH for an efficient and comfortable ride. There are two PATH routes, with several stops in New York and New Jersey. It’s a good way of transportation when you need to travel from Manhattan to Hoboken, Downtown Jersey City or Newark Train station.

Travelling from New Jersey to New York

PATH is the rail system that connects New Jersey with Manhattan. There are two systems: one system runs from the One World Trade Center in New York to Newark and Hoboken in New Jersey, the other runs from 33rd Street in New York to Hoboken and Journal Square in New Jersey. Traveling from New Jersey to New York needn’t take too much time. A train ride will take anywhere between 10 and 30 minutes:

Newark Penn Station – WTC25 minutes
Hoboken – WTC10 minutes
Hoboken – 33rd St14 minutes
Journal Square (via Hoboken) – 33rd St27 minutes

Please note: In 2019 and 2020, the PATH train’s World Trade Center Station will be closed on weekends (excluding major holidays). Service to World Trade Center will terminate at the Exchange Place Station.

Tickets for PATH

A PATH single ride costs US$2.75. If you have a MetroCard (the same card that you use for the subway in Manhattan) with credit, you can use the PATH system. If you don’t have a MetroCard, you can purchase a MetroCard at any PATH or New York City Transit vending machine. There are multiple card options, like a 7-day unlimited card and a 10-ride card: both cards can save you money if you intend to use the PATH often during your stay. Children under 5 years of age travel for free.

Note: PATH does not accept the Unlimited MetroCard

Changing from PATH to subway

The PATH card you receive can also be used for the New York subway. If you use the PATH first and then change to the subway, this will be calculated as two separate rides. So you’ll have to check out from the PATH and check in again at the subway. The same goes for first using the subway and then changing to the PATH.
