Include Bus Rapid Transit on the Tappan Zee Bridge, now NOT later!!

    1. Petition by

      Nadine Lemmon

      Albany, NY

Over 280 public hearings made clear that New Yorkers support transit as part of the new Tappan Zee Bridge.

The State selected a plan that would put Bus Rapid Transit on the bridge and on thirty miles leading up to the bridge on either side. Governor Cuomo's move this fall to pursue a bridge without transit, ignores the State's studies and public opinion. Now transit is eliminated from the plan until some later, unspecified date. History shows this does not work. The Tappan Zee Bridge must be replaced, but a bridge without public transportation would gridlock the Hudson Valley’s economy and do nothing to prevent rising traffic congestion and air pollution.

      Because a bridge without rail transit is a bridge from the 1950s. We're not in the 1950s anymore and we're tired of sitting in traffic and being slaves to our cars.

      I just can't believe they would even consider building a bridge without a mass transit component!

      I'd love to see a pedestrian/cycling route as well.

      The reason so many commute by car from Rockland & Orange Counties is the public transit alternative takes two to three times as long! It would be a great folly and incredibly costly lost opportunity to rebuild the Tap without a public transit component!

      Mass transit is an ESSENTIAL part of combating climate change!
