The Business Council of Westchester is opposed to any course of action that will stall, postpone or even kill this vital project for the most obvious reason: The existing span is already many years past its design life, and is increasingly unsafe. We look forward to this new Hudson River crossing that will provide area commuters with access to rush hour bus service and eventually accommodate mass transit to the bridge.
— Marsha Gordon, President of the Business Council of Westchester
Occasionally you’ll see anecdotal evidence of people moving closer to mass-transit stations to get relief from gas prices. These new city and suburban dwellers tend to be either empty nesters who are tired of raking leaves and managing lawns, or young 20-somethings, often childless, setting out on life’s journey as adults. The reality is that the patterns of most Americans reveals in consumer survey after survey that the overwhelming majority of people prefer to live in a house with a yard, drive a car to work and for shopping.
