Nyack, April 27 — A revamped edition of tzxBus.com, the easy to use online Tappan Zee Express / Metro North schedule finder, is now available.
tzxBus.com shows a simplified schedule for the next Tappan Zee Express Bus or Metro North Train connecting your nearest Rockland County bus stop with Grand Central Station. The new site includes the following enhancements:
- Buses and trains enroute are now included in the available list of routes but are displayed in a diminished color.
- Saturday schedules are now included.
Although TZx fares are increasing to $3 a ride beginning May 16, it’s still one of the best commuting deals around. Bargain conscious commuters can save almost a buck a ride by buying Supersaver tickets in advance from the Rockland Department of Transportation. Using Supersavers, you can take the $3 ride for a cost of $2.20 a trip.
