Trains will run from Newark to the World Trade Center this weekend. There'll be no service between Hoboken and 33rd Street over the weekend.
Round the clock PATH service could resume between seven and ten days, according to the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey. "Workers can make repairs to the PATH system significantly faster when power to third rails is turned off, with no trains running in active construction zones," according to the Port Authority's announcement. On Saturday January 5 and Sunday January 6, service will be suspended between Hoboken and 33rd Street. Trains will run between Newark and the World Trade Center this weekend instead.

Hoboken's PATH station was the last one to open, and service has been restored between 5 a.m. and 10 p.m. every day.

The city has approved emergency appropriations to pay for repairs and the replacement of vehicles.
Super Storm Sandy did at least $4.2 million worth of damage to the city of Hoboken. On Wednesday, the city approved the second round of emergency appropriations of roughly $350,000. During a previous meeting, the city already approved roughly $700,000 in emergency appropriations. This does not include repairs to Pier C Park. It also doesn't include damage done to residences and businesses.

That, too, was approved during Wednesday night's meeting. "Passing a special appropriation does not put cash in the bank," said Business Administrator Quentin Wiest on Wednesday. "We have to go somewhere…
