TARRYTOWN, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) – A plan to improve bus service in Rockland and Westchester counties is getting $20 million in state funding.
As WCBS 880’s Sean Adams reported, the new Tappan Zee Bridge will be sturdy enough to support trains. That’s been deemed too expensive for now, so Bus Rapid Transit will get a boost from Albany to get a new system rolling.
“We are investing in implementing new mass transit in Westchester and Rockland County to make the New NY Bridge an even greater asset for commuters in the region,” Gov. Andrew Cuomo said in a statement.
