STARTING SEPT. 3, 12 NJ TRANSIT ROUTES AT PORT AUTHORITY BUS TERMINAL WILL MOVE TO NEW GATES FOR EVENING COMMUTE

Date: Aug 23, 2016
Press Release Number: 148-2016

Beginning Saturday, Sept. 3, a total of 12 NJ TRANSIT bus routes at the Port Authority Bus Terminal will move to new departure gates for the afternoon/evening commute.

Five buses will move from the terminal’s third level to gates in the lower level of the North Wing. The other routes will be moved but remain on the third level. The changes are expected to result in reduced crowding for customers and improved bus flow through the facility. This is part of a pilot program involving the Port Authority, NJ TRANSIT and Greyhound Lines, Inc.

Specific information about the gate changes taking effect on Sept. 3 can be found via the NJ TRANSIT website. Customers can refer to the bus terminal’s online map for help locating their new gates. The Port Authority and NJ TRANSIT will be distributing printed information onsite, and information about the gate changes will be sent through the Port Authority’s e-Alerts system and on the bus terminal’s electronic kiosks.

Customers also are encouraged to attend the bus terminal’s quarterly Commuter Chat from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. tonight (Tuesday, Aug. 23) on the second floor of the terminal’s North Wing. Representatives of the Port Authority, NJ TRANSIT and Coach USA will be available to provide information and receive customer feedback.
