CB3 to Hear Application for Another Intercity Bus Stop at Canal and Allen
The timing of another intercity bus application for Canal Street couldn’t come at a worse time. Indeed, the Chinatown bus industry is back in the spotlight this week due to the horrific highway pileup in Pennsylvania Sunday morning, in which five were killed and sixty injured. Z&D Tour, whose bus hit an embankment on the Pennsylvania Turnpike, is based out of 59 Canal Street.
This month, LX Transportation LLC seeks approval from Community Board 3 for another bus stop outside this address. Pickup is once per week only, Thursdays at 11:00pm with service to Cincinnati. Ticketing is online only.
This block of Canal Street has become somewhat of a bus depot. Much to the chagrin of locals, who have battled new applicants over the years to reduce saturation and increase safety. Simply one bus stop sign is an invitation to other operators, as once it’s in place, any operator can apply for one.
