Date: Dec 03, 2015
Press Release Number: 190-2015

All Bus Service Will Continue, With Fourth Floor Departures Temporarily Reassigned to New Gates

The Port Authority Bus Terminal's Fourth Floor will be closed this weekend – from 6 a.m. Saturday, December 5 through 5:30 a.m. Monday, December 7 – for repairs to its concrete roadway, with departures temporarily reassigned to new gates so bus service can continue without interruption.

During this time, there will be no access to gates 206 through 208, 220 through 224, and the 400 gates on the upper bus level. The following bus routes will be temporarily assigned to new gates during the weekend:

  • Suburban Transit (Coach USA): All routes will depart from the Bus Terminal's lower level, south wing, Gates 29 – 33
  • Rockland Coach (Coach USA): All routes will depart from the Bus Terminal's lower level south wing, Gates 9 and 11
  • Community Coach (Coach USA): All routes will depart from Gate 303
  • Shortline (Coach USA): All routes will depart from Gates 309 – 313
  • Lakeland Bus: All routes will depart from Gates 316 and 317
  • NJ TRANSIT:
    • NJ TRANSIT Routes 111 and 115 will depart from Gate 301
    • NJ TRANSIT Routes 163 and 164 will depart from Gate 323
    • NJ TRANSIT Route 160 and 164E will depart from Gate 324
    • NJ TRANSIT Route 114 will depart from Gate 325
    • NJ TRANSIT Routes 112 and 113 will depart from Gate 326

To find these gates, travelers can refer to the Port Authority Bus Terminal map at http://www.panynj.gov/bus-terminals/pabt-terminal-map.html

While these closures are in effect through the weekend, the Bus Terminal will suspend its normal, daily 10 p.m. to 1 a.m. gate changes. All routes not affected by the construction will therefore remain at their original 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. gates. Customers seeking information can speak with unformed personnel on duty at the Bus Terminal.

The Port Authority will alert customers through Public Address announcements at the bus terminal, via signs at key terminal locations, and with additional uniformed personnel able to answer customers' questions. The agency also will alert the public through its electronic alerts system and social media.

For up-to-the-minute updates on conditions at the bus terminal and at other Port Authority facilities, travelers are encouraged to sign up for Port Authority alerts at http://www.paalerts.com/.
