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.
