The Port Authority Bus Terminal – New York transportation hub that serves over 225,000 people traveling in intercity 8,000 buses every week. The current terminal is located at 625 8th Avenue and is reputed to be the world’s busiest bus terminal, with a record 65 million being served by the terminal in a year. Port Authority is the largest terminal in the Western Hemisphere. The bus terminal serves interstate buses that travel through the route into Manhattan in New York City.
The existing terminal features a hidden bowling alley that has been used by popular acts, such as Beyonce and Jay-Z, during some of their shows. One wouldn’t expect an existing bus terminal to have a gallery, but the Port Authority indeed has one. The gallery is a great bridge between art and transportation. The gallery also features pictures of notable figures, notable among which are the photographs of boxing legend Muhammad Ali.
The terminal doesn’t have a bus storage unit for either locals or tourists. But that doesn’t mean you will have to drag your bags anywhere you go. Rather, you can find convenient left luggage service offered by Qeepl. We have collaborated with local shops, bars, cafes, and hostels around the midtown bus terminal to offer you cheap luggage storage service.
