New York City Bus Hubs

Which New York City bus hubs have the most buses?

 

I think maybe these might be in the top five:

* Flushing Main Street

* Jamaica 165th Street

* Staten Island Saint George

* Manhattan George Washington Bridge Bus Terminal Area (West 181st Street bus routes)

* Brooklyn Williamsburgh Bridge Bus Plaza

I'm sure Brooklyn has more than what you listed,

 

 

Coney Island

Broadway Junction-East New York

Camden Plaza, Downtown Brooklyn

Atlantic Avenue Pacific Street

 

Queens has Jackson Heights bus terminal.

 

Staten Island has College of Staten Island.

Staten Island has College of Staten Island.

 

College of Staten Island is not a bus hub since its not an major transfer/terminal.

 

You can add Port Richmond terminal

Add Myrtle Avenue-Wycoff Avenue to Brooklyn and the Staten Island Mall to Staten Island.

 

I wouldn't necessarily call the Mall a bus terminal. Where do all the buses converge??? SOme of them terminate at different areas. The S79 terminates behind the Macys, while the S44 terminates outside of the Yukon Avenue Bus depot

Atlantic-Pacific isn't really a bus hub. Obviously downtown Brooklyn is a hub.

It could count as a bus hub, though, since there are a fairly large number of routes fanning out in different directions. (S44/S94 to St George via North Shore, S61/S91 to St George via Victory Blvd, S79 to Brooklyn, etc)

Myrtle-Wyckoff is now known as Ridgewood Intermodal Terminal.

Still don't know when it's going to be completely moved into.

 

Out of the 6 that's there (B13, B26, B52, B54, Q55, Q58), only the Q55, Q58 and half of the B13 use it. The B26, B52, & B54 still use their original terminals

Speaking of Staten Island: Would you consider Eltingville Transit Center and Port Richmond to be bus hubs, in addition to Saint George?

 

We already mentioned Port Richmond.

 

I wouldn't really consider Eltingville Transit Center with the reason being that

 

a) It is close enough to be considered a part of the Staten Island Mall bus hub, since only the S74/S84 stop at Eltingville Transit Center, but not the mall.

 

:( A large number of express buses stop there, so all of those routes can't really count as a part of the hub, since they all go in the same general direction (to/from Manhattan)

I guess the Bronx really doesnt have a Hub like the other Boroughs... possibly Fordham Plaza/Center, Pelham Bay Station, Co-op City/ Bay Plaza and 149th Street/3rd Ave "The Hub".

BTW, why is 149/3 called The Hub?

That's the central business district of the Bronx. I imagine they use that instead of "downtown" (though it is, in both senses of the word), because the term is so fixed as anywhere "south of here" in their parlance.

To you, what is the difference between a "bus hub" & a "major transfer point" ?

or, is there even a difference to you?

 

^^ anyone can answer if they want.

 

 

 

I'm asking that b/c, I'm looking @ Yuki's list (FamousNYLover).... and a good portion of them, I consider to be major xfer points, as opposed to bus hubs.....

his post: http://nyctransitforums.com/forums/showpost.php?p=266839&postcount=7

 

 

example:

 

Penn Station, Brooklyn College (area), Eltingville Transit Center, 74th st bus terminal, (area around) LIRR Patchogue, Walt Whitman mall, to name a few....

 

...and LGA & JFK, I don't even consider major xfer points; just facilities (airports) about a handful of city buses serve

B35 via Church, I would consider a bus "hub" to be places like George Washington Bridge Bus Station (181st Street, Washington Heights-Bronx routes); Williamsburgh Bridge Bus Plaza; 165th Street Terminal; Saint George; and places like Flushing; Port Richmond; Eltingville Transit Center and maybe South Ferry.
