Statement from County Executive Ed Day

MTA Not Raising West-of-Hudson Fares

“I am pleased to share that the MTA has listened to our concerns and will not raise West of Hudson fares.

Rockland County commuters certainly deserve this exemption. I hope the Metro-North will additionally begin to finally improve and expand West of Hudson service from our County, specifically the Pascack Valley line service.

Many may feel like their voice does not matter. This decision makes it clear that it absolutely does. I would like to acknowledge everyone who shared my concerns and contacted MTA, ultimately contributing to the turnaround decision.”
