PATH begins nine-car
operations on NewarkWorld
Trade Center line
▶ The Port Authority of New York and
New Jersey (PANYNJ) began running
peak service trains on its PATH
Newark-World Trade Center line with
an additional car on March 23. While
the debut of nine-car trains is a first in
PATH's 100-year history, more trains
of the same length will be rolled out
gradually during the next 12 months.
Nearly all peak service trains on the
Newark-WTC line will consist of ninecar
trains in early 2024. The PANYNJ
Board of Directors approved the
addition of nine-car trains in 2019 as
part of the PATH Improvements Plan,
which includes increasing capacity on
the Newark-World Trade Center line
by 40 percent and all other lines by
20 percent. To support the extended
trains, PANYNJ ordered 72 railcars
from Kawasaki, which delivered the
first two from the order to PANYNJ in
September 2022.

MTA's Open Stroller
Pilot begins Phase II
▶ The Metropolitan Transportation
Authority has entered Phase II of its
Open Stroller Pilot, which expands to
upwards of 1,000 buses on 57 routes in
all five boroughs. The second phase of
the Open Stroller Program will retrofit
all local and select buses operating
out of six depots by fall 2023 with
designated stroller spaces. Dedicated
stroller space allows riders with young
children to board without needing to
fold their strollers first. The additional
buses participating in the Open Stroller
Program will be identified with a stroller
decal on the outside of the bus, and the
interior designated space will be identified
with a similar decal.
