NEW YORK (AP) - To New Jersey lawmakers, the best thing about the proposed new Port Authority Bus Terminal in New York is that … it’s in New York.

With several state senators looking on in New York Thursday, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey approved the estimated $10 billion to $15 billion terminal for a spot near its current site on West 42nd Street.

Some Port Authority board members had considered putting a new bus terminal in northern New Jersey, possibly in Secaucus, to connect to inbound trains.

That idea was opposed by New Jersey lawmakers who said it would create a two-seat ride for commuters.

Sweeney called it a “tremendous victory” for New Jersey. More than 100,000 people take buses from New Jersey to New York each weekday.
