Attention Tappan Zee Express Riders

Some day soon you will need to follow singer/songwriter Paul Simon’s commuting advice, and “get off the bus, Gus.” That’s because the TZx will be replaced by the LHTL (Lower Hudson Transit Link) when the new Tappan Zee Bridge opens in 2018. LHTL features include new bus shelters with WiFi, improvements to intersections and pedestrian safety, upgraded traffic signals, ramp metering, bus queue jump lanes, Transit Signal Priority (TSP), Integrated Corridor Management (ICM) and improved access to the White Plains Metro-North station.
You can Read All About It at or check out the Cliff Notes created by the Village of South Nyack highlighting the pages that commuters are most likely to care about. The NYSDOT wants to hear what you think about this effort, but they aren’t going to wait forever for your input: the deadline for emailing comments to is May 6.
