A Case for Bus Rapid Transit on the Tappan Zee Bridge

Getting Up to Speed
A Case for Bus Rapid Transit and Transit-Oriented
Development in the Tappan Zee Bridge/I-287 Corridor

Executive Summary

Traffic congestion on the Tappan Zee Bridge and along the I-287  corridor between Suffern and Port Chester is an obvious problem that is likely to worsen with time and cannot be solved through road widening or other highway improvements.  As the Tappan Zee Bridge/I-287 Environmental Review moves forward, it is clear that mass transit must be a part of the Tappan Zee corridor’s future.

The most pressing transportation need in the I-287 corridor is effective suburb-to-suburb transit.  The majority of people crossing the Tappan Zee Bridge at rush hour are driving from dispersed homes in Rockland, Orange, and Bergen counties to dispersed jobs in Westchester County and Connecticut; providing these drivers with an effective mass transit alternative will do the most to reduce congestion in the corridor.
