Trains will run in both directions from 5 a.m. to 10 p.m. every day. Meanwhile, service remains suspended to the World Trade Center.
That’s good news for some Rockland commuters, who have been enduring longer commutes to work since heavy damage from Superstorm Sandy shut down the Hoboken PATH station in October.
“I am definitely looking forward to things getting back to normal,” New City resident Dennis Graiani said this afternoon. “This is a huge step in the right direction.”
Graiani, 23, had been walking from Hoboken to Newport, where he was catching the PATH train to get to his office in midtown.
