Port Authority Bus Service Resumes

Bus service in-and-out of the Port Authority bus terminal in New York has resumed following a closure due to a suspicious package.

NJ Transit tweeted out a message just after 8:00 p.m. that service had been suspended and the terminal’s south wing evacuated. However, after examination by the NYPD Bomb Squad it was determined the bag was a gym bag that posed no threat according to WABC.

A tweet from New York’s Office of Emergency Management confirmed that the terminal was reopened around 9:15 p.m..

 

NJ Transit warns to expect delays as service resumes.

Travelers were sent outside during the closure as buses already on their way to the Port Authrity dropped passengers off in front of the terminal.

NJ Transit says tickets are being cross honored on PATH.

Earlier today New York Michael Bloomberg and NYPD Commissioner Ray Kelly announced that the Boston Marathon bombing suspects were believed to be heading to New York to blow off 5 pipe bombs and a pressure cooker bomb in Times Square.
