Federal Money will Fund Enhanced Security on PATH Rail System

The Port Authority today was awarded a $48.3 million federal stimulus grant for projects that will enhance security on its PATH rail system. The money will be used to upgrade PATH infrastructure to enhance the security for the millions of customers who use it each year.

The Port Authority received three-quarters of the $72.2 million in federal Transit Security Stimulus Grant money available nationally for capital projects.

Port Authority Chairman Anthony R. Coscia said, “PATH is a lifeline that links the two states, and the safety and security of our customers who use it each day is a top priority. That’s why we’ve invested millions of dollars of our own money in PATH security and we sincerely appreciate the federal contribution to help make the system among the safest in the country.”

Since 9/11, the Port Authority has spent more than $4 billion on capital and operating security at its transportation facilities in New York and New Jersey.
