The Port Authority Bus Terminal (PABT) is the largest bus terminal in the nation and one of the busiest bus terminals in the world. On a typical weekday, the PABT accommodates approximately 220,000 passenger trips and more than 7,000 bus movements. Yet, built 65 years ago, the PABT faces structural limitations that complicate its day-to-day operations. Moreover, by 2040, peak-hour passenger traffic is expected to increase by 35-51% and peak-hour bus traffic is expected to increase by 25-39%. In order to meet the growing transportation demands of the region, The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey has launched an International Design + Deliverability Competition seeking conceptual designs for the PABT’s replacement. The design concepts submitted will be informed by a Trans-Hudson Commuting Capacity Study, and by input from commuters, residents and businesses in the vicinity of the bus terminal, as well as civic organizations and other stakeholders.
The questionnaire below will provide us with information about your experience using the existing PABT and the characteristics you would like to see in the future bus terminal. The final question allows you the opportunity to provide any comments or concerns not addressed throughout the survey. Your feedback will be taken into consideration during the competition, and you will have other opportunities to provide comments throughout the process.
We appreciate your input and thank you for your time.
