The world’s busiest bus facility, the Port Authority Bus Terminal in NYC, could face a major overhaul or even a replacement.

The Port Authority of NY/NJ has awarded a contract for a “Midtown Bus Master Plan” to “revitalize” the squat hulking gateway to Midtown Manhattan as part of a plan to accomodate expected increases in bus traffic. The study will also consider “possible terminal replacement,” which would dramatically change the face of, and commuting experience in, the Times Square area.
