Bridge Name Stands, and New Bus Lanes Enforced

The day after the elections tells Hudson Valley residents the new bridge’s name will not be changed any time soon. If “New York’s immigrants are at the heart of our state’s rich civic and social diversity,” as the state’s website says, then why did Governor Cuomo erase their important and significant representation?

Last Sunday I was in Nyack and watched one new Hudson Link bus nearly clip my car as its driver made a left turn from South Broadway. I moved past the curb at a red light on the single-lane side street because a car parked on the other side of the street added to the driver’s difficulty. What will happen when the streets are crowded with people and cars in a hurry?

Here’s what you need to know per the press release if you commute by car:

“State Police will be responsible for enforcing the proper use of the bus lane. The first violation will carry a fine of $150, and the penalty would escalate for any repeat violations within an 18-month period.”

Let’s hope the new bus line is effective for Westchester and Rockland commuters. Westchesterites say it offers no opportunities for transit-oriented development; Rocklanders aren’t happy about the new bus stop locations and routes.

I’d like to know what you think.
