Good and bad news for Harrison PATH riders awaiting new station
By Steve Strunsky | NJ Advance Media for NJ.com
on April 21, 2015 at 4:58 PM, updated April 21, 2015 at 5:47 PM

HARRISON — For Timothy Braddock, a media company engineer waiting for a train to New York at the Harrison PATH station, the sooner the 80-year-old station is scrapped for a planned $256 million replacement the better.

Construction to begin on $4M Grove Street PATH station elevator

By Terrence T. McDonald | The Jersey Journal
on April 21, 2015 at 5:42 PM, updated April 22, 2015 at 4:43 PM

JERSEY CITY — Construction is set to begin on a $4.04 million project to add a handicapped-accessible entrance to the Grove Street PATH station.

A federal judge in 2011 ordered the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, which runs the PATH system, to make the Downtown Jersey City station accessible to the disabled. The decision came as the result of a lawsuit filed against the bi-state agency by two nonprofits 10 years ago.

I rode the PATH yesterday, just a few thoughts:

I found the map to be confusing, I ended up taking the Newark-World Trade Center route.
The train was pretty slow except for when it was going from Exchange Place to WTC, then it felt like a subway.

Its slow due to all the construction underway... I'm not sure how anyone can become confused on a system as small as the PATH...everything is color coded and they use automatic announcements...

I'm curious, what expansions were proposed?

I've been shocked to learn how much NJT service has been scaled back in the last decade or so...a lot of municipalities lost connections.

Small List of Expansions that are shelved

PATH
Extension to Plainfield

Newark Light Rail
2 Lines to Elizabeth , one via Route 27 as a Streetcar and the other via the Airport / Elizabethport and onto Cranford
3 lines heading North , one to Paterson , another to Montclair or Verona on Bloomfield Avenue & Extension to West Orange via the current line

Bus Rapid Transit
1 line west to Irvington along Springfield Boulevard
1 line West to South Orange

Regional Rail
MOM Rail Network , West Trenton , Lehigh Valley service would be threaded through Newark either bound for New York or Hoboken

Any Future Amtrak NEC Intercity Services would go through Penn aswell...

As Oculus at World Trade Center Opens, So Does a Neighborhood

DAVID W. DUNLAP
MAY 6, 2015

Santiago Calatrava’s Oculus, that unearthly winged structure taking form at the World Trade Center, will open to limited pedestrian traffic in June.

This will give the public its first glimpse of a majestic and luminous space — framed by soaring, softly curving white ribs and the ribbons of light between them — that looks like nothing so much as the nave of a cathedral by Gaudí.

Or like a turkey skeleton after it’s been stripped clean at Thanksgiving.

The debate over the $3.9 billion World Trade Center Transportation Hub, of which the Oculus is the aesthetic and retail centerpiece, is only beginning. Love it or hate it, however, there is no denying its magnitude.

So yesterday I was at the WTC taking some photos of the New train station that had opened on Wednesday. I wasn't there for more then 30 seconds when the guard approached me pointing a Flash light and yelling at me to stop taking photographs... I had read a Hudson reporter article saying that it was legal to do so , which I told him. He said I had to delete my photos , I told I wasn't.... After a few more minutes oh arguing with him over it , he decides to give up and walk away. But as he was walking he said something threatening , I couldn't make it out...but I decided to call him out on it...which I realize was a mistake... He comes back over even more aggressive then the first time. I then ask for his name so I could report him , he refuses...so I go to take his photograph and he tries to reach for my camera. I decided to leave the station not wanting to escalate things further and on my way up I spoke with a staffer about the rules...Which he seemed unsure of...

During this whole time , numerous other people were taking photos with there phones....I guess because I had the big DSLR I drew attention to myself. But over the last few days 100s of photos of the station have been taken... I didn't delete the photos if your wondering I uploaded them to my Flickr... I know the PA had a Photography ban in the past , but over the last few years it has been quietly removed... I do hear of people being harassed in the Aviation & Bridge community from time to time...by Security Guards.. I don't spend much time at PA facilities aside from the WTC... I never saw any signs on the PATH , only a few at the Bus Terminal which were removed last year...and a few on the Bridges which were removed from what ive heard.

The Article where it says it legal http://www.hudsonreporter.com/view/f...ideographers-?
I did manage to take a few photos before I was yelled at...

So the Port Authority hosted a Summit on Tran-Hudson Capacity solutions here is a Link to the page, and the Slide shows by the PA, MTA, NJT, Amtrak and the RPA are at the bottom of the page. Enjoy!
