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.
