Update: PATH resumed full services at 10:23 PM May 28.
The entire PATH system is shutdown as of 7:41 p.m. May 28, stranding passengers from both sides of the Hudson River. The PATH alert notice simply read: Due to a police investigation, all train service is suspended.
IBTimes reached an employee at the PATH emergency situation media hotline who said no police officer is immediately available to comment. (IBTimes will update this article if we get a call back.)
On this warm Memorial Weekend Saturday night, many New Yorkers and New Jerseyans have ventured to the opposite side of the Hudson River. Now, they're stranded.
We really need to go home, said one stranded couple at the WTC stop on the Manhattan side, maybe we need to go up to the 33rd street [entrance].
Doing that, however, wouldn't work; the entire system is down so there is no flow between Manhattan and New Jersey.
To get home immediately, passengers can either take a taxi or go to the Port Authority Bus Terminal to take buses across the water. From the Manhattan side, it's located from 40th to 42nd streets, between Eighth and Ninth avenues.
