Statement from Mayor Zimmer on Port Authority Tabling Proposal to Cut Overnight PATH Service

Hoboken PATH
On January 14, 2015, Senate President Steve Sweeney and Assembly Speaker Vincent Prieto announced that they had secured a commitment from Port Authority Chairman John Degnan to indefinitely table plans to eliminate overnight PATH service.

“I thank Chairman Degnan for listening to our voices and for taking the idea of PATH overnight service cuts off the table,” said Mayor Dawn Zimmer. “With 56% of Hoboken residents using public transportation to commute each day – the highest rate not just in the state, but in the nation – the success of our community and region is intrinsically linked to a robust mass transit system. Going forward, we should be focused on ideas to expand, not cut public transportation options within our region.”

20140217_422044.xml-brine+3
The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory for our area from 3am to 1pm on Monday, January 12, 2014. A mix of snow, sleet and freezing rain is forecast, with up to an inch of snow and up to a tenth of an inch of ice. Hazardous travel is expected due to icy roadways so please plan extra time for the morning commute.

The City of Hoboken will spread salt brine on streets this afternoon in anticipation of the icy weather, so streets may appear white. Pre-treating roads prevents snow and ice from bonding with the pavement. All parking regulations, including street cleaning, will be in effect on Monday, January 12, 2014. If conditions change, an additional announcement will be made.

No Street Sweeping Enforcement Friday, January 9


Enforcement of street cleaning regulations is suspended for Friday, January 9, 2014. All other parking regulations remain in effect and will be enforced.
