TAXI STAND, SHUTTLE BUS LOADING ZONE TO RELOCATE
City of Hoboken, February 26, 2010 – The Hoboken Terminal taxi stand will be relocated and a loading zone for shuttle buses will be created at the terminal, effective on or about Monday, March 1st (weather permitting). The existing taxi stand will move to the south side of Hudson Place, east of River Street to accommodate construction of a sewerage pump station by the North Hudson Sewerage Authority. Construction of the pump station is scheduled to begin in March.
Also, to streamline shuttle bus service at the terminal, the city is creating a designated shuttle bus loading zone on the north side of Hudson Place, east of River Street. Permitted shuttle buses will be able to stand in the shuttle zone for up to five minutes Monday through Friday from 7 to 10 am and 4 to nine pm.
The area will be designated as a loading zone for local businesses from 10 am to 4 pm and will be available for parking at other times.
