Planning for a New Bus Terminal

On February 16, 2017, the Port Authority Board of Commissioners authorized the agency to begin the first phase of a comprehensive planning process for the replacement of the midtown bus terminal.

To initiate the planning process, the Board authorized the agency to hire consultants to provide environmental and planning services for the bus terminal replacement. These consultants would ensure that planning efforts comply with all applicable environmental and regulatory review processes, and that there is coordination with stakeholders and adherence to eligibility requirements for federal funding, if required.

Planning for a new bus terminal will include identifying an optimal location based on ongoing engagement with the City of New York and other New York and New Jersey stakeholders. Additionally, it will include reviewing the agency’s previous Midtown Bus Master Planning effort, the findings of the Trans-Hudson Commuting Capacity Study commissioned by the Board, the competition concepts submitted to the Port Authority Bus Terminal International Design + Deliverability Competition and the subsequent Build-in-Place analysis.

Prior to bus terminal replacement, potential intermediate bus staging and storage facilities and other initiatives to sustain and meet capacity requirements for efficient operations of the interstate bus network will be evaluated. These initiatives will help ensure the existing PABT is able to continue to meet current bus and passenger demand.
