Westchester County Bee-Line System First and Last Mile Connections Mobility Study

The Westchester County Bee-Line System First and Last Mile Connections Mobility Study aims to investigate how other cities and suburban areas, along with their transit agencies/operators, are developing innovative approaches to expanding options for people to overcome first mile/last mile challenges to transit through partnerships with Transportation Network Companies. The Study identifies partnerships that have been attempted in recent years, and analyzes whether those models may be able to translate into a service that can work for Westchester County.

Bee-Line Routes 7 and 13 Study

The Bee-Line Routes 7 and 13 Transit Study assessed the Bee-Line Network's two busiest east-west transit corridors for opportunities to operate faster, more reliably and more efficiently to best serve the needs of current and future customers and support future growth. The study was completed in May 2017.  Implementation is currently underway.

Public meetings were held in May 2016 and October 2016.
