Check the PATH schedule--that claims it's 22 minutes. Might be a couple minutes off, but it's definitely not a 45-minute trip!

Schedules - PATH - The Port Authority of NY & NJ
I don't care what the schedule says; I regularly take the PATH from Newark Penn to the WTC for an office of my company near City Hall, and it takes 35-45 minutes from the moment I walk through the PATH turnstiles to the moment I reach the street. Most recently, I left my office in Newark at 11:20, walked to Penn, reached Penn at 11:40, crossed through the turnstile at 11:45, reached the street outside the WTC PATH station at 12:30 on the dot, which was the time I was supposed to be at the NY office (and would have been, if the PATH had only taken the 22 minutes it claims to). I reached the NY office at 12:45.

The trip itself may only have taken 30-35 minutes, but as I said, the 45 minutes includes the time you have to wait for another train if you've missed one.

LOL, well I can't argue with that, but I take PATH from Newark to Exchange Place every morning and evening, and the trip is just under 20 minutes. The difference is that you are not traveling during rush hour, so naturally there's a longer time between trains.

This morning I got off my NJ Transit train at 7:30, walked through the PATH turnstile, got on the PATH train that was there, which closed it doors at 7:31, and sailed off to Exchange Place and got off the PATH at ten to 8. WTC is 3 and 1/2 to 4 minutes past that.

The schedule says there's a train at Newark at 11:45, so you apparently just missed it. Also, there are probably construction delays on non-peak hours because they are building a new PATH station around an active line.
