MEDIA ADVISORY - PORT AUTHORITY BUS TERMINAL TO GO PINK FOR BREAST CANCER AWARENESS MONTH

Date: Oct 03, 2017
Press Release Number: 184-2017

The Port Authority Bus Terminal – the nation’s busiest bus facility – will join other agency transportation facilities in support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month by going pink beginning today, October 3.

To support the initiative, the South Wing’s main concourse will illuminate its cove accent lighting with pink wrapped gels on both sides, using the same cost-effective stage light gel concept as the George Washington Bridge. The terminal also has placed a signature pink ribbon decal on its floor, plans to light its Performing Arts Sound Stage with pink spotlights during special performances and collaborate with ‘Park Assist,’ the terminal’s vendor who owns and operates the Media Mesh that drapes the façade of the building, to go pink periodically with programmed messaging throughout October.

Other Port Authority facilities also are participating this month in support of Breast Cancer Awareness. The 156 LED necklace lights of the George Washington Bridge, the FAA control tower at John F. Kennedy International Airport, LaGuardia Airport’s East Garage and East substation and Newark Liberty International all are hosting events and/or lighting their facilities pink this month.
