1950 - On December 15, after two years of construction and $24 million, the Port Authority Bus Terminal (PABT) opened to serve commuters and residents of New York. Located in the heart of Times Square, PABT is the world's busiest and our country's largest bus terminal, serving more than 7,200 buses and about 200,000 people on an average weekday.
1963 - On January 17, the George Washington Bridge Bus Station (GWBBS) opened to the public. The GWBBS was designed by Dr. Pier Luigi Nervi, the noted Italian engineer, architect of the 1960 Olympic Stadium in Rome and other world-renowned structures.
1974 - The Journal Square Transportation Center (JSTC) was finished. The underlying PATH station was completed a year earlier and now serves approximately 30,000 commuters daily. First used by the Port Authority at the original World Trade Center, Transit Oriented Development is a mixed usage of commercial space to maximize access to public transportation. The combination of the bus terminal, PATH system and a ten-story office building makes JSTC a multifunctional space serving the needs of both commuters and residents.
