People who commute on PATH are accustomed to the crowded platforms, the packed trains and the mad rush to get onboard.

In recent days, however, commuters say the commuter crush at PATH station platforms has become so bad it borders on being dangerous and unsafe.

Overcrowding was reported by commuters Thursday on social media at PATH’s Grove Street, Exchange Place, Newark Penn Station and Newport stations. The crowding and movement of the mass of people surging toward and away from packed trains left riders concerned for their safety and questioning how the PATH is handling crowd control.

Some riders called it worse than the infamous crowding on the New York City subway.

“I was almost pushed onto the tracks this morning at Exchange Place. The platform was so crowded it was seriously dangerous,” said Natasha Markley in a tweet. “Beyond the delays, the threat to safety is totally unacceptable.”
