After the [[September 11, 2001 attacks]], which resulted in the destruction of the vital [[World Trade Center (PATH station)|World Trade Center]] station, Ninth Street experienced serious overcrowding. In 2002, Ninth Street was used by an average of 8,900 people per day, about 3.248 million per annum. This was 54% higher than the 1.496 million passengers that utilized this station in 2001.
