NEW JERSEY (PIX11) - In a letter to elected officials in New Jersey, the Chairman of the Port Authority has agreed to table any PATH train cuts.

They were suggested in a report endorsed by the Governors of New York and New Jersey as part of a larger Port Authority reform effort.

Elected officials and riders expressed outrage that weekend and overnight cuts were being considered.

"We want to thank the 20 elected officials that have been a part of this process as well specifically Senator Menendez, Jamie Fox, Speaker Prieto and Senate President Sweeney,” said Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop. “Now that Degnan has agreed to not cut PATH service, we should start considering the expansion of the service as I think this process has hopefully opened the Port Authority’s eyes to the importance of the service.”
