Frank E. Rodgers Boulevard South
Harrison, NJ 07029
The Harrison PATH station is located on Frank E. Rodgers Boulevard south of the Interstate 280 overpass in Harrison, New Jersey. The simplest station in the PATH system, it opened on November 26, 1911 at the intersection of Rodgers Boulevard and New Jersey Railroad Avenue. When the PATH was realigned to Newark Penn Station in 1937, the station moved slightly south to its current location.
The station has two narrow, open-air side platforms. In between the PATH tracks are three center tracks that are used by NJ Transit and Amtrak.
Until 2005, one could take the short ride from Harrison west to Newark for free. However, with the installation of new smart card turnstiles at all PATH stations, passengers must now pay a fare to take the PATH to Newark.
The Harrison PATH Station is currently undergoing renovations under a $173 million modernization project by the Port Authority of New York & New Jersey. The new station will feature longer platforms for additional cars, wider platforms for an increased amount of standing room, and street-level-to-platform elevators in compliance with ADA regulations, as well as architectural modifications to its appearance.
The Harrison PATH Station also lies in close proximity to Red Bull Arena, -a 25,000 soccer specific stadium- home of the New York Red Bulls of Major League soccer. The station provides convenient public transit access for sports fans before and after events.
Harrison Station, a new luxury rental community, is also situated next to the Harrison PATH Station.
Opened in 1913, Harrison Station is ready for a massive face-lift as it readies for its centennial. Conceptual designs call for sleek, glass-and-steel covered pavilions for passengers to replace the current, aging cantilevered-roofs that do not cover the entire platform. The modern look of the new station is expected to blend well with the area’s planned residential and commercial developments and new sports stadium.
Four modern entrances will improve access, while a new waiting area will provide a new information booth and more comfortable seating. Retail space also will be part of the indoor amenities. Outside, there will be landscaped plazas and passengers will find a more convenient drop-off and pick-up area. All together, these improvements promise an enhanced experience for riders as Harrison’s station enters its second century.
