Ridgewood NJ, Chris’ idea to move the bus station to the train station is lunacy.

300 NJT buses every weekday at the tiny and already overcrowded Garber Square intersection.
Up to 20 NJT buses an hour in rush hours.
900 new pedestrians in the morning rush and 900 new pedestrians in the afternoon rush.
Buses acting as 40 foot long walls obstructing line of sight for drivers and hundreds of pedestrians alike.
Each bus = 3 car lengths so traffic that already backs up Franklin and down to Monroe will back up more. Fewer cars will get through each light cycle.
Listen here to the ill-advised and not thought out plan: https://youtu.be/z5AdA2XVZoU#t=01h05m55s
