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. [40] The area was still being rebuilt in December 2013,[41] and in February 2015, the PANYNJ and the MTA agreed to finish the station. [15] It had a standard two side platform layout with two tracks.

[3]:S.4 The station featured a canopy entrance along Church Street and a 118-by-12-foot (36 by 3.7 m) mosaic mural, "Iridescent Lightning," by Giulio Candussio[45] of the Scuola Mosaicisti del Friuli in Spilimbergo, Italy. [29] The first option was chosen, and to quickly restore service to Rector Street and South Ferry stations to the south, workers demolished the remainder of the station and built walls where the platforms used to be. An editor at The New York Times wrote that "Mr. Calatrava is amassing an unusually long list of projects marred by cost overruns, delays and litigation", referring to his other projects around the world that were over budget. [51] In June 2007, the street entrance to the temporary station was closed and demolished as part of the site construction. Also by this date, one crane had been disassembled and painting of the hub continued. The contracts were "dual" in that they were signed between the City and two separate private companies (the Interborough Rapid Transit Company and the Brooklyn Rapid Transit Company), all working together to make the construction of the Dual Contracts possible. Retail Sales Locations MBTA riders can purchase tickets and passes for the Commuter Rail, bus, subway, and ferry at stores located throughout the Greater Boston and Providence areas. [41] The uptown PATH tubes, ferry routes, and NJ Transit lines across the Hudson River could not handle the displaced ridership on their own, and it was deemed necessary to rebuild the World Trade Center terminal. [3]:S.5, The station was also home to a StoryCorps booth, which opened in 2005. The first phase would include the construction of a temporary northern entrance, which would be open between 2005 and 2006. Trains from New Jersey use the loop to turn around and head back to New Jersey. [120], The Transportation Hub is designed to connect the PATH subway system to the New York City Subway system. WTC Cortlandt,[a] additionally signed as World Trade Center on walls and formerly known as Cortlandt Street and Cortlandt Street–World Trade Center, is a station on the IRT Broadway–Seventh Avenue Line of the New York City Subway in Lower Manhattan. In order for the line to continue down Varick Street and West Broadway, these streets needed to be widened, and two new streets were built, the Seventh Avenue Extension and the Varick Street Extension. [64] The station is ADA-accessible via the elevator at Vesey Street, as well as existing elevators to the World Trade Center Transportation Hub. There is also a crossunder between the two platforms at the north end of the station, north of the hub. [62][63] Calatrava's design called for an above-ground station house (now the Oculus) with curved supports that extended outward, like wings. [97], The Transportation Hub has been described as either one of the world's most expensive train stations,[98] or the world's single most expensive station, for its massive reconstruction cost of approximately $4 billion. [40] When the site was filled back in, the developers of the new World Trade Center rebuilt Cortlandt Street across the site as one of the primary roads, resulting in the rebuilt Cortlandt Street station again serving its namesake. [25] In 2001, just prior to the September 11 attacks, the Cortlandt Street station saw 19,446 riders per day. ... Calatrava and his partners said that the impact and utility of the Oculus would be diminished if it were shrunken further, that the temporary station did not meet requirements for circulation of air and pedestrians, and that columns would interrupt visitors' movement and provide a potential target for bombers. According to an internal MTA document, train conductors are explicitly told to abbreviate the World Trade Center's name as "WTC" when making announcements for the station. The Dual Contracts promised the construction of several lines in Brooklyn. In 2013, the PANYNJ awarded a contract to rebuild the station. 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. [36]:50 In the second quarter report for 2010, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey confirmed that excavation under the tunnel structure of the World Trade Center site was nearly complete, and that construction of the Cortlandt Street station would begin during the third quarter of 2010. [63][64] There is an out-of-system connection to the Fulton Center via the WTC Hub. [98] In 2012, Hurricane Sandy damaged several hundred million dollars worth of materials. When the Hudson Terminal was torn down to make way for the World Trade Center, a new station was built, which opened in 1971. There were also underground connections to the New York City Subway (A, ​C, and ​E trains at World Trade Center, and N, ​R, and ​W trains at Cortlandt Street–Church Street).

[56] This mezzanine is connected to an aboveground head house structure called the Oculus—located between 2 World Trade Center and 3 World Trade Center—as well as to public concourses under the various towers in the World Trade Center complex.

[23], Trains bypassed the station in the aftermath of the February 26, 1993, World Trade Center bombing. You can also get to World Trade Center by Train, Bus or Subway. After United Airlines Flight 175 hit the South Tower at 9:03 a.m., dispatchers ordered the closure of the Exchange Place and World Trade Center stations; the former was closed due to severe water damage. [35], In 2007, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey (PANYNJ), in the Environmental Impact Statement for the World Trade Center PATH terminal, expected the Cortlandt Street station to reopen in 2009. [19] In 1965 and 1966, the platforms were extended to accommodate ten-car trains. The high cost for a single station is attributed to the extravagant design, which stems from the Port Authority needing to convince the government of New Jersey to pay for a project situated entirely in New York. [33] The WTC PATH station was served by Newark–World Trade Center and Hoboken–World Trade Center trains. [52] The station also contains an air-conditioning system. [30], Groundbreaking on the World Trade Center took place in 1966. Muschamp continued that the architect's vision "should satisfy those who believe that buildings planned for ground zero must aspire to a spiritual dimension. In addition, the Dey Street Passageway along Dey Street connects the Transportation Hub east to the Fulton Center, providing access to the 2, ​3​, 4, ​5​, A, ​C, ​E​, J​, N, ​R, ​W, and Z services.

WTC Cortlandt, additionally signed as World Trade Center on walls and formerly known as Cortlandt Street and Cortlandt Street–World Trade Center, is a station on the IRT Broadway–Seventh Avenue Line of the New York City Subway in Lower Manhattan. [104] Especially because the current station has a ridership of only 46,000 daily passengers compared to 250,000 at Grand Central Terminal, the renovation is sometimes depicted as overpriced and overstylized. [84] The concourse cost $225 million to build, and has been described as the most expensive passageway in the world.

PATH eastbound tunnel F can be seen in the center, penetrating the slurry wall on its way up Cortlandt Street to Hudson Terminal. The interior of the station house contains two underground floors, which house part of the Westfield World Trade Center mall. [98], The design was costly, with Calatrava netting $80 million in design fees[103][102] and the overall architectural design being another $405.8 million. The first phase of the demolition of the original station cost $19 million. [88] The mezzanine level of the station was undergoing major construction and work on the foundation was underway.
