In 2018, you won’t have to wonder when the next Tappan Zee Express will arrive, because the answer will be…never. The TZx bus service, which shuttles passengers between Rockland and Westchester and takes West of the Hudson commuters to Metro North stations in Tarrytown and White Plains, will be replaced by the new Lower Hudson Transit Link service when the second coming of the Tappan Zee Bridge opens in two years. The LHTL will include real time bus arrival times posted at each bus stop, similar to what you might see on a platform at NYC subways.
Critcs say “nice try” but what has been proposed falls short of Rockland and Westchester’s future mass transit needs.
