My numbers are much higher than your question requests but my guess is that you could mean
1.The Port Authority Bus Terminal
The world's busiest bus terminal, a western anchor of Times Square, serves 58 million riders a year. During 2001, the terminal handled over 2.2 million bus movements (arrivals and departures) and 57 million passenger trips. On a typical weekday, approximately 7,200 buses and about 200,000 people use the bus terminal.
(17,600 buses criscross Times Square every weekday. )
2. Times Square subway
3281 trains run through Times Square every weekday.
Trains have on average 10 cars. (Each car carries 115 passengers)#
'This new Train 3879 will provide customers with an additional 1,150 seats.'#
