  1. New NY Bridge BRT Proposal

    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.
