Press Release Number: 163-2018

Effective October 29, access to bus facility between 3 a.m. and 4:45 a.m. will only be available from terminal’s North Wing main floor door

The operating procedures for bus passengers who board early morning NJ Transit and Greyhound buses will be changed effective October 29 to provide one centralized location for entering the facility and boarding buses, the Port Authority announced today.

Between 3 a.m. and 4:45 a.m., NJ Transit and Greyhound customers can enter the bus terminal at the North Wing main floor, where ticketing options and a waiting room with seating will be available. Buses operating during those hours will pick up and discharge passengers on 41st Street, just outside the door from the North Wing main floor area. The bus gates will be closed during this time period, and there will be no access to restrooms.

The limited access is in keeping with the traditional daily shutdown of most of the facility during the overnight hours to allow for comprehensive security sweeps and for better cleaning of the facility.

Currently, NJ Transit operates four weekday buses, five Saturday buses and four Sunday buses during that time period. Greyhound operates two weekday buses and three buses on both Saturdays and Sundays during that time period.
