NJ Transit plans upgrades for Port Authority terminal

Posted on March 12, 2009

The NJ Transit board of directors today approved work to upgrade customer communications at the Port Authority Bus Terminal in New York — a project that will enable the transit authority to improve bus service at the largest-volume passenger terminal in the agency’s bus network.

 

The board authorized a $2.9 million contract with Daidone Electric of Newark, N.J., for construction work that includes installation of new variable message sign (VMS) monitors and public address systems; new conduit, cable and power feeds for existing and future ticket vending machines; an upgrade to the existing radio system; and installation of closed-circuit television (CCTV) cameras.

 

The upgrades will improve overall bus operations and provide a number of customer benefits, including real-time travel information, faster ticketing and improved PA announcements.

 

Construction is expected to begin this spring, with completion anticipated in December 2009.
