It is not a policy as such, but rather Rules and Regulations which have the full force and effect of laws. The above link is to the photography regulations as well as other potentially relevant Rules and Regulations. The following excerpt, most relevant to the question, prohibits photography of PATH in its entirety absent compliance with the provisions, such as being accompanied by a PATH employee, but that provision is likely unenforceable as unconstitutional to the extent of photography from vantage points not owned by the Port Authority. The key question is whether there would be an attempt to enforce it on non-PA property were one to photograph, for example, from the adjacent parking garage or other nearby building.
"IX. Photography and similar activity.
A. The taking or making of photographs of any portion of the PATH system is prohibited except as provided herein.
B. The taking or making of films, video recordings, and drawings or other visual depictions are subject to the same prohibitions, restrictions and procedures as are applicable to photography.
C. Photography which involves any of the following must comply with the requirements of the Extended Photography Policy and Procedures, in addition to these Rules:
1. Exclusive use of any area or any railcar or part of a railcar.
2. Exclusion of members of the public, PATH or Port Authority personnel, or PATH or Port Authority contractors from any area or any railcar or part of a railcar.
3. Use of equipment other than handheld equipment with self-contained power sources.
1. No person may take a photograph of any portion of the PATH system unless he or she is accompanied by a representative of PATH.
2. No photograph shall be taken of any specific location, device or structure if such representative advises that such photography is prohibited because it will create an image which could be used to aid in the planning of an attempt to disable, destroy, avoid or circumvent any operational, safety, security, evacuation or emergency response device, structure or procedure, or which could be used in the planning of an attempt to commit an act of violence or intentionally cause disruption of rail service or public panic within the PATH system or a part thereof. If possible, a suggestion for alternative photography in PATH which would not have such an effect shall be made by the PATH representative."
