WSJ article this morning on Port Authority Bus Terminal hitting its limits in terms of idling buses and passengers - suggests a lot of exhaust. Also suggests trains into the city are almost near capacity.

The Regional & Urban Networks are all hitting there capacities.....and will start bursting at the seems....unless something is done. The Gateway Project and East Access Project will solve the Problems Regional Rail wise , if the Ferries were cheaper and ran more often the LIRR and NJT could redirect trains to Long Island City and Hoboken thus taking pressure of the Subway / PATH system and Penn station. As for the Bus system theres not much you can do , but if the Regional rail network was restored faster to the areas that get high bus usage then maybe they can reduce the amount of buses. There is a plan to slowly do this but it will take 25 years. But should add 400,000 more people on the Jersey Side and 100,000 on the Westchester side. Getting more people on to Trains on the Jersey Side can be accomplished with filling in the gaps in the system which is taking longer then expected.....that should add another 60,000 to the Regional Rail or Bus network. NJT , MNRR and LIRR need to realize that theres a strong outbound work force into the many Satilite cities and by sending more peak outbound trains to cities like White Plains , Stamford , Newark , New Brunswick and Paterson maybe you can ease the stress on the system not everyone works in NYC.

I wonder why this makes me think that the Wall Street Journal isn't as up on things as it might be? (Perhaps readers of that paper--or editors--don't normally take buses through Port Authority or ride on the subway?)
