Statement from Governor Murphy on the Expansion of the Port Authority Bus Terminal

05/23/2019

"The advancement of a new Port Authority Bus Terminal that meets the needs of our commuters has been a top priority of mine since day one of this Administration. And now, after a long process fraught with uncertainty, we can finally begin the work to expand bus capacity for New Jersey commuters, to make their commutes less stressful, and to provide them with a facility that shows their value to our regional economy. Today’s release means that we can begin real stakeholder engagement – hearing from commuters and advocates, from elected officials, and from our partners in labor

"I applaud Senator Weinberg, who has for many years fought to make today a reality, as well as the Port Authority leadership, for making New Jersey’s bus commuters a priority. Across the board, from the replacement of the bus terminal to the Gateway program, the Port Authority has been a key partner in providing the modern, safe, and reliable transit infrastructure our economy and our commuters need. I look forward to continuing our work together."
