(PIX11/AP) — Extensive delays are being reported at Port Authority Bus Terminal after a pedestrian was killed at the facility Thursday afternoon.
Port Authority Police spokesman Joe Pentangelo says it happened around 5 p.m. at the bus depot near Times Square. It’s the nation’s busiest bus station, with more than 58 million commuters passing through it last year.
The 67-year-old man, from Garrison, was pronounced dead at the scene.
Police aren’t releasing his name while working to notify his family.
Bus Terminal staff are working to set up alternate operations, but urge customers to seek other modes of transportation if possible during this evening’s rush hour. NJ Transit is cross honoring this evening for bus passengers that are able to take the train to get home.
Passengers took to Twitter to voice their frustration.
Pentangelo says the bus driver stayed at the accident scene.
