World Trade Center is a terminal station on the PATH system, within the World Trade Center complex in the Financial District of Manhattan, New York City. It is served by the Newark–World Trade Center line on weekdays and holiday weekends, as well as by the Hoboken–World Trade Center line on weekdays, and is the eastern terminus of both.


The World Trade Center station is located near the site of the Hudson and Manhattan Railroad (H&M)’s Hudson Terminal, which opened on July 19, 1909. In 1961, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey bought the bankrupt H&M system, rebranded it as PATH, and redeveloped Hudson Terminal as part of the World Trade Center. As part of the construction of the World Trade Center, Hudson Terminal was torn down, replaced with the World Trade Center station, and re-opened on July 6, 1971. Following the September 11, 2001 attacks, a temporary station opened in 2003 while the World Trade Center complex was being rebuilt. Work on a permanent station building commenced in 2008. The main station house, the Oculus, opened on March 3, 2016, and the terminal was renamed the World Trade Center Transportation Hub, or “World Trade Center” for short.


The World Trade Center station has five tracks (three for Hoboken-bound trains, two for Newark-bound trains) and four platforms in the middle of a turning loop. Trains from New Jersey use the loop to turn around and head back to New Jersey. The platforms are located four floors below ground level. The floor immediately above the platforms is occupied by the station’s fare mezzanine. The New York City Subway’s WTC Cortlandt station is adjacent to and above the mezzanine.

由西班牙建築師聖地亞哥·卡拉特拉瓦(Santiago Calatrava)設計的,耗資40億美元的Oculus站房由白色肋骨組成,這些肋骨在地面上方互鎖。車站房屋的內部有兩個地下樓層,是Westfield World Trade Center購物中心的一部分。交通樞紐通過車站房屋連接了曼哈頓下城的各種交通方式,從東部的富爾頓中心到西部的砲台公園城市輪渡碼頭。該樞紐包含與紐約市各個地鐵站的連接,包括2號,3號,A,C,E,N,R和C區的錢伯斯街-世界貿易中心/公園廣場/科特蘭德街W列火車和WTC Cortlandt乘1列火車。它是紐約都會區第五繁忙的交通樞紐。

The Westfield World Trade Center mall is also within the Oculus building. The new station has received mixed reviews: although the hub has been praised for its design, it has also been criticized for its high costs and extended delays.
