On a typical weekday, more than 187,000 people enter New York City from New Jersey by either New Jersey Transit bus (92,025 daily commuters) or six other private coach companies. Nearly 8,000 buses enter New York City every day from New Jersey and the northern New York suburbs, with 90 percent entering through the Lincoln Tunnel.

The world’s busiest bus facility is the Port Authority Bus Terminal (PABT): 200,000 people pass through the Terminal every day and more than 65 million people pass through the Terminal every year.

MTA New York City Transit also manages Express Buses, 62 bus routes that operate like Commuter Buses, bringing outer-borough commuters to various termination points throughout Manhattan's business districts.
