Despite overcrowding commuters PATH has reportedly maintained an on-time rate of nearly 98% since repairs began in Manhattan.

Basil Skaltsis, who takes the PATH in the mornings to Hoboken says his commute has been trouble-free.

“My rides have been great. I've had no problems,” said Skaltsis.

The smaller commuter train and subway system transports thousands of people across the Hudson, between New York City and New Jersey every day.

The PATH is the least inexpensive way to get across the Hudson, although its ridership remains on the lower end compared to other transit agencies in the region.

But after this summer’s performance, commuters could possibly stick with PATH, bumping its ridership up on a more permanent basis starting in the fall.
