TRAVEL RESTRICTIONS IN THE CONTEXT OF COVID-19

The Port Authority continues to follow guidance from public health officials in New York and New Jersey regarding mask mandates at its public transportation facilities. According to new New York public health guidelines and current New Jersey public health guidelines, masks are no longer needed at the agency’s facilities in New York and New Jersey, but masks are now optional and welcome for anyone who chooses to wear them.

Masks are no longer needed on the interstate PATH system, including stations and platforms.

The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey is a bi-state agency that builds, operates and maintains many of the nation’s most important transportation and commerce infrastructure. For more than a century, the agency’s network of major airports; critical bridges, tunnels and bus stations; a suburban train line; and the East Coast’s busiest seaport has been among the most vital in the country – transporting hundreds of millions of people and moving essential goods to and from the region. The Port Authority also owns and operates the 16-acre World Trade Center campus, which today hosts tens of thousands of office workers and millions of annual visitors. The agency’s landmark 10-year, $37 billion investment plan includes an unprecedented transformation of the region’s three major airports – LaGuardia, Newark Liberty and JFK – as well as an array of other new and improved assets , including the $2 billion renovation of the 90-year-old George Washington Bridge. The Port Authority’s $8 billion annual budget does not include any tax revenue from the states of New York or New Jersey or New York City. The agency raises the funds necessary for the improvement, construction or acquisition of its facilities mainly on its own credit.
