Bee-Line Winter Service Changes


The Westchester County Bee-Line bus system will make seasonal route changes Feb. 15 to meet demands. Here’s the announcement:

Service to be increased on some routes and reduced on others
Schedules on several bus routes will change on February 15 when the Bee-Line System implements its winter service changes.
“We will be adding or extending trips on routes where ridership demands it,” said county Transportation Commissioner Lawrence C.  Salley.  “However, we will be reducing service on several routes where ridership is very poor.”
The Route 1X will be extended from the Westchester Community College to the Westchester Medical Center on the county’s Grasslands Reservation.  To relieve overcrowding, the 8:24 a.m. route 40 trip from Mount Vernon to White Plains will be extended to the Westchester Community College.
Among the service to be reduced due to poor ridership are:
•    All service on route 12 between Armonk and Jefferson Valley will be eliminated.
•    Wall Street trips on route BxM4C, the Westchester-Manhattan Express, will be deleted.
•    AirLink, the express bus between downtown White Plains and the County Airport, will be discontinued.
The Department of Transportation estimates that these schedule changes will save approximately $1.4M in operating costs.
New schedules and a brochure explaining the schedule changes are onboard all Bee-Line buses.  Information is also available by calling the Bee-Line HOTLINE at 914-813-7777 or by logging on to www.westchestergov.com/beelinebus.
