Still No PATH Train

Today's service advisory from the Port Authority:
Due to widespread flooding in the PATH tunnels and multiple stations, as well as power outages that have shut down signals and switches, PATH rail service continues to be suspended. PATH engineers, staff and third party contractors are working around-the-clock with the goal of resuming partial service between New Jersey and New York as soon as safely possible.
And the same message on NJ Transit trains into Manhattan:
New Jersey Transit is running special bus service to move commuters across the Hudson River one week after Sandy forced the shutdown of mass transit services. The plan calls for moving bus passengers from park-and-ride hubs to give them access to light rail and ferries in Hoboken, Weehawken and Jersey City.
At least the Hudson River Ferry is running.
Commencing Monday morning, November 5, NY Waterway will resume normal weekday ferry/bus service on all regular routes, except Port Liberte in Jersey City, which was severely damaged by Hurricane Sandy. We are particularly pleased that this will include the historic ferry terminal at Hoboken Train Station, which, like the rest of the City of Hoboken, was under several feet of water after the storm.
HOV restrictions into Manhattan have been suspended.
You will not need three people in your car if you’re traveling into New York City on Monday. In a press conference Sunday afternoon, Mayor Bloomberg announced that the carpooling regulations put in place after Superstorm Sandy will not go back into effect this week.
