July 21, 2016"New York City has significant concerns with the process that the Port Authority of NY and NJ has undertaken thus far for the much-needed redevelopment of the Port Authority Bus Terminal. It is clear that a Port Authority Bus Terminal and interstate transportation system with expanded capacity is long overdue; the Bus Terminal is among New York City's most congested public spaces and will, in coming years, no longer be able to safely meet the demands of a rapidly growing number of commuters. Replacing it represents one of the most significant infrastructure challenges in the city over the next decade and demands a rigorous and transparent planning process. New York City and its residents must have a full voice in key issues such as site selection, terminal size, operational improvements and how to avoid the need for condemnation of private property in the area.
