Residents Spoke, City Listened: Alt Access to WTC Now Available on Weekends
The residents of Jersey City were pretty steamed when they heard the WTC PATH station would be closed on weekends for about a year due to construction from Super Storm Sandy damage. It seems that enough people spoke up about this and got the City to act. Candice Osborne (Jersey City Councilwoman–follow Candice on Twitter @candiceosborne) recently sent out the below email to her distribution list telling us that the NY Waterway will be offering $2.50 ferry rides (each way) to the World Financial Center (WFC). That’s compared to the regular price of $8.00 for a one-way ticket on the ferry. This is a 6-week trial program to see if the people that spoke up will actually use it. Big high-five to Candice for making this happen. It’s up to us residents to USE IT OR LOSE.
