The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey plans to construct an expanded terminal in Hell’s Kitchen that would handle 100 extra buses.

The $400 million Galvin Plaza Bus Annex project would open on West 39th Street between 10th and 11th Avenues by 2020. About 233,000 passengers currently use the bus terminal daily. The annex would accommodate an additional 30,000 passengers. The agency applied for a Federal Transit Administration grant to fund $230 million of the expenses related to an enclosed bus parking facility that’s part of the project.

Community Board 4 has already shown support for the plan, DNAinfo reported.

“Traffic backs up, service becomes unreliable,” Andrew Lynn, director of planning and regional development at Port Authority, told DNAinfo. “During a peak period, 200 buses an hour can be fed into the terminal using the facility — that’s a one-third increase in peak period capacity.” [DNAinfo]Mark Maurer
