Funding for the new Port Authority bus station is now approved

Rebecca Fontana

Yesterday, the budget was finally approved for the new Port Authority Bus Terminal. Okay, it’s not all the money they wanted, but $29.5 billion isn’t a bad compromise, right?

The sum actually covers renovations of La Guardia Airport as well, which means that the bus station gets just $3.5 billion. And we do mean “just”—estimates for the project were originally between $8 and $10 billion.

The new Port Authority project would replace the garbage heap it currently is with a shiny new terminal, along with all-new ramps to the Lincoln Tunnel and a new parking garage for buses.

A new Port Authority and a new Second Avenue subway? You’re too kind, MTA.
