EVERYTHING OLD IS NEW AGAIN
CONSTRUCTION BEGINS ON TRAILWAYS OF NEW YORK’S FLAGSHIP KINGSTON TERMINAL
Trailways of New York, the largest privately held intercity bus carrier in New York State, announces the start of an ambitious renovation and expansion of its flagship terminal in Kingston, New York.
Replacing the nearly half century old Kingston Terminal is a critical step toward modernizing bus travel in the region. Originally built in the early 1970s, the Kingston Terminal serves more than 250,000 passengers annually, handling an average of 40 buses each day; 365 days per year.
Renovations are underway and are scheduled to be complete by early summer 2019. The planned renovation includes a 21st century interior redesign featuring enhanced modern amenities, comfortable seating, upgraded restrooms, Wi-Fi, digital arrival and departure boards, and self-service ticketing kiosks. The remodeled exterior will boast a more accessible pedestrian boarding zone, new sidewalks, reconfigured parking including EV charging stations, and landscaping for a more pleasing aesthetic.
“Trailways of New York’s investment at our flagship location underscores our commitment to a better overall travel experience for our customers. The project, in coordination with the City of Kingston, Ulster County, and the New York State Department of Transportation will continue to stimulate economic growth in the region,” said Anne Noonan, Vice President of Marketing and Traffic at Trailways of New York. “We have no doubt that by delivering an improved experience in Kingston, it will be more enjoyable for visitors to explore the very popular destinations we serve throughout the Hudson Valley.”
During the construction, passengers will need to find alternate parking. Updates on the construction and passenger advisories can be found at TrailwaysNY.com, and on the Trailways of New York (TrailwaysNY) Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram feeds.
The Trailways of New York Kingston Terminal was designed by Missouri based TranSystems Construction Engineering, and will be carried out by Rosendale based JH Construction.
