George Washington Bridge Bus Station Closes for Long-Delayed Upgrade

By DAVID W. CHEN | AUG. 24, 2014

The closing represents the latest milestone in a much-delayed $183 million upgrade project, the most extensive since the terminal was built in 1963.

The project is expected to create 324 jobs and produce $31.7 million in economic activity, the authority said. And in contrast to the current station — a desolate place with little business activity — the new terminal will feature 120,000 square feet of retail space. More than half of that space has been leased by companies such as Marshalls and Blink Fitness, Christopher Valens, a spokesman for the authority, said.
