Newark Airport to Get PATH Train Service
Travelers heading to Newark Liberty International Airport will be able to take a single train from Manhattan to catch a flight, but they will have to wait until 2024 to do so.
The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey announced it will move ahead with a $1.5 billion plan to extend its PATH train system to the rail station at Newark Liberty.
The project is part of a 10-year, $27.6 billion capital spending plan unveiled Tuesday morning by the authority’s Board of Commissioners.
The new tracks would extend the line by roughly two miles. Currently, PATH service is available from multiple points in Manhattan to both Hoboken and Newark but there is no direct rail link to the airport.
The extension is expected to be in place by 2024.
