Port Authority bus gates to be realigned in bid to reduce delays

For the second consecutive September, New Jersey Transit and the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey will realign bus gates at New York's main bus terminal to try and reduce congestion.



Twelve bus routes will have new departure gates at the Port Authority bus terminal starting Sept. 3.



Five routes will move from the terminal's third level to the lower level of the North Wing. The other routes will move to other spots on the third level.



Most of NJ Transit's gates were consolidated last September on the third floor and most of Coach USA's gates were consolidated on the fourth floor.



Officials are working on plans for a brand-new bus terminal that should improve some of the congestion, but the completion of that project is years away.



More information about the gate changes can be found on the New Jersey Transit website.
