After years of deliberation, with proposals advancing five years ago toward the planning stage, the PATH train is finally forging ahead toward a station located at Newark Liberty International airport. Current passengers can take the PATH train to its terminus at Newark Penn station, before changing to board a NJ transit train to the existing AirTrain station at Newark Liberty Airport/EWR.

Currently the country’s 12th busiest airport by foot traffic, the updates to the airport – announced in 2022 – include infrastructure improvements and plans to increase more efficient access to the airport for passengers from across the New York/New Jersey area.
