Port Authority prepared to handle more than 5 million travelers over July 4 weekend

NEW YORK - With more than 5 million travelers expected to use airports, bridges, tunnels, terminals and PATH during the July 4 holiday weekend, the Port Authority is prepared to provide assistance at its facilities through website alerts, Twitter updates, online parking reservations and additional customer care representatives at the airports to ensure a safe and enjoyable travel experience.

More than 2 million passengers are anticipated to travel through the agency’s airports during the six-day holiday period from July 1 through July 6.  

Passengers are encouraged to sign up for Airport Info Alerts at www.airportinfoalerts.com. This free subscription service notifies customers electronically of weather delays, parking lot capacities and AirTrain service delays at any of the PA facilities.

On Friday, July 4, PATH trains will operate two lines of service.  Journal Square to 33 Street (via Hoboken) will operate every 10 minutes for most of the day. Service from Newark to World Trade Center will run every 15 minutes for most of the day, and will be making all stops including the World Trade Center and Exchange Place stations.

To accommodate riders planning to attend the annual Macy’s 4th of July Fireworks celebration, the World Trade Center and Exchange Place stations will continue service later than usual on Friday, July 4, until about 2 a.m. Saturday.  The stations will then remain closed through 5 a.m. Monday and substitute ferry service will be provided during that time.

For up-to-date service information, passengers are encouraged to follow PATH Rail System on Twitter at www.twitter.com/PATHTrain. Passengers can also sign up for up-to-date alerts through www.PATHAlerts.com.
