The Port Authority is seeking interested individuals who commute regularly through or live near the midtown bus terminal to serve on the agency’s new Port Authority Bus Terminal Advisory Council.
The new advisory council – which will launch in July as a 12-month pilot program – will be tasked with providing input to facility management on operations, customer service issues and community impacts from operations. Bus terminal council members will meet every two months either in person or via teleconference.
Applications to participate on the council must be received by June 7. The council will be open to commuters who regularly travel through the bus terminal and to community residents who live within neighborhoods adjacent to the bus terminal, including Hell’s Kitchen, Times Square, Midtown West, the Theater District and the Garment District.
To obtain an application, go to www.panynj.gov/PABTAC or pick up an application at a Bus Terminal Information Booth or at the Port Authority Bus Terminal Replacement Center, located just inside the terminal’s Ninth Avenue entrance between 40th and 41st streets.
Completed applications can be submitted via e-mail to PABTAC@panynj.gov; via mail to PABT Advisory Council, TB&T Customer Programs and Services, 4 World Trade Center, 150 Greenwich Street, 22nd Floor, New York, N.Y. 10007; or hand delivered to a Bus Terminal Information Booth or at the Port Authority Bus Terminal Replacement Center.
