Busta Shinjuku opened today - a brand new highway bus and taxi station across from the South Exit of Shinjuku Station that was completed after ten years of construction. "Busta" is short for "Bus & Taxicab Terminal."
Busta Shinjuku's main feature, reflected in its name, is the Shinjuku Expressway Bus Terminal that occupies the fourth floor and most of the third floor.

Shinjuku Busta has made as big an entrance onto the Shinjuku transport and Shinjuku shopping scene as its name implies, making this Tokyo's busiest and most vibrant area all the more accessible and glamorous.
