Coleman says there were reports that some passengers had pulled the emergency cord to open doors and jump off the train.
Coleman says officials had to shut down power to check the tracks.
No passengers were found and PATH service resumed at 8:05 a.m.
There were no reports of injuries and officials haven't determined what caused the problem on the train.
