NEWARK, N.J. (AP) - Five finalists have been chosen to submit designs for a new bus terminal in midtown Manhattan.

The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey announced the finalists Thursday. They will make submissions by early August.

An independent eight-person jury will select the winning design, possibly by September.

The finalists are Arcadis New York, part of a Netherlands-based firm; a group headed by New York- and Shanghai-based Archilier Architecture; a joint venture between STV and AECOM, companies that have worked on projects such as AirTrain JFK and the Second Avenue Subway; a team led by Pelli Clarke Pelli Architects of New Haven, Connecticut, and international design firm Perkins Eastman.

The crumbling, six-decade-old bus terminal serves more than 200,000 people per day and is the source of frequent delays.
