A taxi program is underway in the cities of White Plains, New Rochelle and Peekskill, giving ParaTransit riders the option to take a taxi instead of a ParaTransit van. Either way, the fare is $4. ParaTransit riders from throughout Westchester County may use the taxi service, but only for trips within the city of White Plains, New Rochelle and Peekskill. As the program grows the county will continue to bring the taxi program to other municipalities in Westchester.
Riders can schedule a taxi ride in exactly the same way as a van ride. Find out more by reading the brochure ParaTaxi is Here.
Bus stop improvements are on the way throughout the county. Improvements include painting, signage, lighting, paving, connections to sidewalks, seating, accessibility and bike racks. It is expected that the cost to the county will be reduced through the application of federal stimulus money and other federal and state aid.
Stops have already been improved along the Central Park Avenue corridor, the North Broadway corridor in White Plains and in downtown Peekskill. Also, the TransCenter in White Plains has new sidewalks and improved pedestrian access.
Bee-Line Bus Service Guidelines for Westchester County Municipalities have been written to serve as a basic reference tool for municipal staff, governmental agencies and consultants engaged in site design and review activities.
