The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey says passengers can save by purchasing multi-ride tickets. A 7-day unlimited ticket will cost $29 and riders will pay $89 for a 30-day unlimited ticket.

The agency announced in 2011 that single PATH fares would increase at a rate of a quarter per year to help fund a 10-year capital plan. The projects include extending PATH to Newark Liberty airport, replacing the Harrison PATH station and renovating the Grove Street station.
