Buskers, dancers and other kinds of entertainers have long used the PATH train system running between Newark and New York as their stage, albeit an informal one. 

Now, the Port Authority, the bi-state agency that runs PATH, wants to make those performances official. 

The Port Authority recently held auditions for acts that will be allowed to do their thing at five PATH stations: Hoboken, Journal Square, Harrison, Newport and Exchange Place. The program, PATH Performs!, hosted the auditions at the William Brennan Courthouse in Jersey City last week, the agency said in a blog post. 

.About 30 local acts -- including bands, singers, dancers and poets -- auditioned before the panel, which included Port Authority staff as well as members of the Hudson County Office of Cultural & Heritage Affairs/Tourism Development. 

Many of the acts will likely be chosen to perform, the agency said. The performances will be held a few nights a week beginning next month. 

“We were really excited about the idea of performing on the PATH because we could represent Jersey City and our local music scene,” said Gabrielle Richa, leader singer of the band Apollo Sonders. 

“We’d love to have all new ears hear our music.”
