County Mobility and Bus Redesign Study

Given the nationwide trends of declining bus ridership, technological advances and a greater range of available mobility options, Westchester County is embarking upon an overall assessment of its current transit system and a bus network redesign to better meet the emerging mobility needs of the region.  The approach of this study is to utilize a 'blank slate' strategy to redesign transit service from the ground up by objectively reviewing existing transit conditions and determining market needs.  The RFP document is available online at www.westchestergov.com/rfp.  The deadine for requests for clarification is 4:00 p.m. on June 14, 2019.  The submission of proposals is 4:00 p.m. on July 10, 2019.

This Peer Review examines how Bee-Line System peer transit agencies have gone about planning and implementing bus system redesign projects, and is intended to provide a framework for Westchester County in identifying an appropriate approach to undertaking its own redesign effort.

Bee-Line Bus Operations Study between 242nd Street and Getty Square

  • The 242nd Street/Getty Square corridor is served by the Bee-Line Routes 1, 2 and 3. This corridor is one of the busiest in Westchester County, with nearly 300 Route 1/2/3 trips transporting approximately 17,000 passengers each weekday. The Westchester County Department of Public Works and Transportation is seeking opportunities to improve the operational efficiency along the corridor in order to best serve the needs of its users.

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.
