Transportation: Harrison Station is located next to the Harrison PATH Station with quick service to Newark, Jersey City, Hoboken and Manhattan. The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey announced in April, 2012 that they will spend more than a quarter-billion dollars to replace the 76-year-old station with a far grander, more accessible terminal of glass and steel to serve the commuters who use the facility each weekday. Plans call for the single-story, yellow brick PATH station and platforms that cross over Frank E. Rodgers Boulevard to be replaced by a much larger terminal with improved access to the elevated tracks. Longer platforms, designed to accommodate 10-car trains the Port Authority plans to begin using along the World Trade Center branch between Newark and Lower Manhattan, will also be added.
