Commuter train station to open
next to WTC complex
NEW YORK, N.Y. -- Commuter train service between New Jersey and
lower Manhattan will be re-established by December 2003 in a
$544 million project, officials said Thursday.
A temporary PATH station will be opened next to the World Trade
Center complex -- a stop that served 65,000 daily commuters
until September 11. The station will operate until a permanent
transportation plan is developed, officials said.
PATH trains still serve Manhattan, but only make stops north of
the trade center site.
The plan for the temporary station was approved last Thursday at
a meeting of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey Board
