JERSEY CITY, N.J. — Service on PATH’s 33rd Street line is suspended for the weekend.

Workers are installing signals for federally mandated positive train control technology.

The weekend service into New York is expected to resume Dec. 19. Weekend service suspensions began in August.

Positive train control is a GPS-based technology designed to automatically slow or stop trains that are going too fast.

Regulators say the system can take over control of a train when an engineer is distracted or incapacitated.
