“The Commuters” is a sculpture -made by american artist George Segal- in the main hall of the Port Autority bus terminal in Manhattan since 1982. It shows 3 people – made of bronze and white patina- waiting for the bus, about to walk through an open door. Sculptor George Segal has high regards for commuters: “These are long-suffering people” he said in an 1982 People article.
