About This File

The MTTF recommends a new Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) system that is

simpler, faster, and more reliable than what is provided today. The

BRT system will expand and enhance the existing transit system and will

take advantage of extra lane capacity on the NNYB. The transit system

proposed by the MTTF for the I-287 corridor fundamentally changes

transportation options in Westchester and Rockland Counties. While the

proposed system maintains connections to Metro-North Railroad (MNR), it

goes far beyond just connecting commuters to the rail system. Many

people don’t realize that the travel markets within and between each

county are significantly larger than travel from either county to Manhattan.

The proposed system aligns with these travel markets while still serving

Manhattan-bound commuters. The proposed BRT network is customized

for the region with rapid deployment capability, allowing it to be in place

when the NNYB opens. It is complemented by an infrastructure program

that allows transit to move quickly and reliably through congestion and

stay on schedule. The routes will connect more people to more places in

both counties and across the bridge, whether traveling eastbound or

westbound.
