The PATH is one of the busiest mass transit systems in the country, but a report released by a governor-appointed panel says PATH trains do not bring in enough revenue.

That has Governor Andrew Cuomo and New Jersey Governor Chris Christie calling for the privatizing of train operations between New Jersey and the city.

The governors are also suggesting scaling back the transit system's hours.

Specifically, they say, PATH trains do not bring in enough money between the hours of 1 a.m. and 5 a.m.

The news of the report's release comes just two days after Cuomo and Christie vetoed an earlier suggestion to overhaul Port Authority.

The transportation hub operates the train line that takes about 73 million rides annually.
