Considering the time needed for security checks: There will be cars & busses backed up on Liberty all the way around and south on West down to the BB Tunnel. Add delivery trucks to the mix and folks will soon learn that public transport via the Trans Hub is the only way.
Hope that drivers know not to be blowing horns down this way when sitting in the long wait to park.

I really think it'll make the most sense in the long run to have the tourist buses park in New Jersey and have people take the PATH line to the WTC. Otherwise, as you said, it'll be a mess. And the tourists will get a fun subway experience out of it as well. I've never understood the people who go to NYC and just take tourist buses everywhere. The fun is in walking/riding the subway/taking taxis.

Liberty State Park has ample land to accommodate buses, cars etc. for visitors visiting not just the World Trade Center Memorial, but also Ellis Island and Liberty Island. The former CNJ Terminal can be used to process visitors, ticket sales, tour groups etc.. From there they could take a ferry from one of the ferry slips to one of the three locations (Ellis Island, Liberty Island, World Trade Center).

From the new WTC site overview you can clearly see how large and deep the VSC will eventually be.

Not much deeper then you already see, the bottom of the slurry wall is only about 10 to 15 ft deeper then the bottom now.

There is approximately 30ft more of rock to come out in the coming months: an estimated 30,000 yds of material to be drilled and blasted. Groundwater management is going to be a major undertaking.

A view from inside the "bathtub" at Phase 1 of the VSC. As much as 40 ft of rock has to come out in places to the right of the crane. The drill in the foreground is prepping blasting holes.
