The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey and the Metropolitan Transportation Authority of New York commenced a program in which the MTA's Pay-Per-Ride Metrocard would be valid for payment of fares on the PATH service. The program first began on November 23, 2003 at the temporary World Trade Center station in New York City, New York. It is expected to be fully implemented at all PATH stations by the end of 2004. Non Pay-Per-Ride Metrocards such as Monthly, Reduced Fares and Unlimited Ride cannot be used to pay for fares on the PATH system. It should be noted that PATH Quickcards are only valid on the PATH rail system, There is no plans to implement the use of the PATH Quickcard system at MTA owned stations.
