The Dixie Hotel in New York City's Times Square opened in 1930 and had a bus terminal in its basement. A rather unique bus terminal, because it had a turntable that rotated buses around! Ten buses at a time could unload and load passengers, while they entered and left one at a time. Scouting New York went to look for it. The hotel is now the Carter Hotel (previously on Neatorama), and the bus terminal is now a parking garage. It's been changed quite a bit, but the turntable is still there, and the original floor from the riders' waiting room. See pictures of the bus station then and now, at Scouting New York. Link
