The Port Authority will activate a new lighting system that will improve the quality of life around the Port Authority Bus Terminal during a ceremony at 5 p.m. Friday, November 14.
The ceremony will begin with a speaking program in the bus terminal's General Manager's conference room, located on the first floor of the bus terminal's South Wing, between 40th and 41st streets near 9th Avenue. Following the speaking program, the new lights will be activated outside on 9th Avenue.
The project was the result of a cooperative effort between the Port Authority and Community Board 4, which has looked for ways to upgrade the area around the bus ramps. The lighting schemes will change based on the day and time and unique lighting schemes will be activated during major holidays.
