The MTA has launched a new website devoted to information and updates about Penn Access. Visit the site at https://pennstationaccess.info.
When completed in a few years, the Penn Access project will link Metro-North’s New Haven line directly to Penn Station through four new stops in the Bronx. Because the rail line splits in New Rochelle, our community will have the closest station to Manhattan with direct service to both the east and west sides — a huge asset.
The MTA’s website focuses primarily on benefits for Bronx residents, which is understandable given that the bulk of new capital investments will occur in that borough, but the advantages for commuters in Westchester and Connecticut — and especially New Rochelle — will be enormous.
