Port Authority to plan for new bus terminal

NEW YORK (AP) — A new main bus terminal is being discussed by the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey.

The 64-year-old Port Authority Bus Terminal has come under criticism from New Jersey lawmakers who say their constituents have to deal with long delays, substandard conditions and a lack of communication.

The terminal accommodates more than 200,000 passenger trips each day. This week, one of the passengers was John Degnan. He’s about to take over as chairman of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, the agency that operates the terminal.

The terminal wasn’t included among a list of major projects in the agency’s 10-year capital plan released earlier this year. Degnan said at Wednesday’s monthly board meeting that any future capital planning should factor in a new bus terminal.
