The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey has begun the environmental review process for replacing its Midtown Manhattan bus terminal. The current terminal at Eighth Avenue and 42nd Street, the world’s busiest with 260,000 daily passenger trips, dates from 1950 and was expanded in 1981.

“Today’s kickoff of the formal public outreach process for the new bus terminal is a critical milestone for what will be one of the largest and most important transit infrastructure projects in the country,” said Port Authority chairman Kevin O’Toole. “We are strongly committed to replacing this legacy, over-capacity facility, and look forward to a spirited dialogue with all stakeholders on how the project will proceed.”

Demand for bus service to and from the terminal is expected to increase 30% by 2040, according to the authority. The cost of replacing the terminal has been estimated at $10 billion.
