Hoboken–33rd Street is a rapid transit service operated by the Port Authority Trans-Hudson (PATH). It is colored blue on the PATH service map and trains on this service display blue marker lights.[1] This service operates from the Hoboken Terminal in Hoboken, New Jersey by way of the Uptown Hudson Tubes to 33rd Street in Midtown Manhattan, New York.[1] The 3.5-mile (5.6 km) trip takes 14 minutes to complete.[2]

This service operates from 6:00 to 23:00 (11:00 PM) on weekdays only.[3] At other times, this service is replaced with the Journal Square-33rd Street (via Hoboken) service.[3] This route has the fewest handicapped accessible stations available; they are at the terminals only.

History[edit]

The Hoboken-33rd Street service originated as the Hoboken – 19th Street service operated by the Hudson and Manhattan Railroad (H&M) on February 26, 1908. It operated from Hoboken Terminal, but ran only as far north as 19th Street (H&M station) in Manhattan, until the line was expanded to 33rd Street (H&M station) on November 10, 1910. The 19th Street station was closed by H&M on August 1, 1954,[4] and the H&M itself was succeeded by Port Authority Trans-Hudson (PATH) in 1962. After the September 11 attacks destroyed the World Trade Center station, service on this branch was suspended during overnight hours with all service provided by the Newark - 33rd Street via Hoboken branch until Exchange Place reopened on June 29, 2003.
