    Several New Jersey lawmakers will ask the Port Authority to rethink a recent proposal to eliminate overnight PATH service at news conference Monday.

    The Port Authority suggested last month terminating PATH service between 1 and 5 a.m. on weeknights and possibly on weekends due to low ridership at those times.

    But elected officials and labor advocates say the proposed weeknight service cuts would affect roughly 390,000 riders annually and hundreds of thousands more if weekend overnight service were cut. They say the PATH users at those hours are mostly working-class residents who use the PATH to get to and from their jobs.

    The Port Authority says the cuts would save the agency $10 million a year.

    The elected official will speak at 2 p.m. at the Grove Street PATH Plaza in Jersey City.
