On January 14, 2015, Senate President Steve Sweeney and Assembly Speaker Vincent Prieto announced that they had secured a commitment from Port Authority Chairman John Degnan to indefinitely table plans to eliminate overnight PATH service.

“I thank Chairman Degnan for listening to our voices and for taking the idea of PATH overnight service cuts off the table,” said Mayor Dawn Zimmer. “With 56% of Hoboken residents using public transportation to commute each day – the highest rate not just in the state, but in the nation – the success of our community and region is intrinsically linked to a robust mass transit system. Going forward, we should be focused on ideas to expand, not cut public transportation options within our region.”
