“Now that the long-sought reconstruction of the old Jamaica Bus Depot is nearing realization, elected officials from the surrounding neighborhoods and from areas served by buses from the terminal are asking the Metropolitan Transportation Authority to adopt what they see as the most environmentally friendly of three proposed construction options. In a letter ‘expressing our disappointment’ to MTA Chairman and CEO Pat Foye and NYC Transit President Andy Byford dated Nov. 22, 18 elected officials requested that the MTA pay the extra money to go with “Candidate Alternative D,” which would house the highest number of buses on-site and do so in enclosed parking facilities.”
