HOBOKEN - PATH service has resumed at the Hoboken station for the first time since Hurricane Sandy.

Trains between Hoboken and the 33rd Street station in Manhattan will initially will run daily in both directions from 5 a.m. until 10 p.m.

With this latest service restoration following Hurricane Sandy, all PATH stations are open. The return of Hoboken service provides more than 29,000 commuters with restored mass transit between Hoboken and Midtown Manhattan. However, you still can't travel between Hoboken and World Trade Center.

Sandy decimated the entire PATH system, flooding the tunnels with up to eight feet of water, and destroying critical signal and switching systems.

Officials say the return of limited 24-hour PATH service is expected by year's end and in time for New Year's Eve.
