I like the Eltingville Transit Center. Why? Simply because the X1 stops there! Lol

PABT is amazing, if not a bit dated.

 

Hoboken Terminal is very neat because it's literally a bus terminal next to a rail terminal!

 

Newark Penn has bus lanes, but isn't a terminal as such, but i still find it amazing that it sits directly under the elevated station structure.

Walter Rand and Journal Square are nice. The Port Authority Bus Terminal is disgusting. The Greyhound terminal in DC is even worse.

The Philadelphia Greyhound Station/Terminal is at 1001 Filbert Street in Center City. It also serves Martz Trailways to Scranton and Wilkes-Barre, Susquehanna Trailways to Sunbury and Shamokin (and other points) and Capitol Trailways to Reading (and other points). (NJT)'s #313, 315 317 and 551 and seasonal 316 and 318 stop there.

-------------------

 

 

final note...

yuki (and to anyone agrees w/ palisades mall)

 

palisades mall, as huge as that damn mall is, has to have the WORST bus terminal for as many ppl. that use it, daily... too many people in that cramped space, it's only one lane, god help you if 3 or more buses arrive at the same time (with the 2nd, 3rd, etc. bus is the one you need to board), there's no sidewalk whatsoever... and there's only about ____ <---- this much space on the curbside that you can actually walk on, due to the shrubbery in the way to your left, and the very close proximity of the actual bus to your right... and worse, there's no sign of it being an actual bus stop... it can easily be mistaken for a taxi stand, since there are actually taxi's opposite the booth (inside the mall parking lot)....

At the Palisades they have one tiny bus shelter. People get so desperate that they sit on shopping carts. Roosevelt Field is worst. At least the Palisades bus terminal is right outside of the mall. At Roosevelt Field you have to walk a distance through the parking lot to get to the buses.

yeah, @ RFM, that's the downside... the terminal is far enough away from the mall (Sunrise mall is just as bad, but anyway)... but at least the stops are designated... hell, there are separate lanes (plural) for buses or w/e... that's the key... more lanes/bays, etc. means a bit more space for passengers to stand, compared to people standing on dirt @ an obscure stop (singular) where several buses stop at.....
