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.
