    Penn Station Access Facts

    Penn Station Access will create a new Metro-North Railroad link directly into Penn Station, providing critical system resiliency to protect service for more than 275,000 daily customers. The project will build four new Metro-North stations in the Bronx. This additional service will:

    • Substantially reduce travel times to and from Manhattan’s West Side
    • • Introduce convenient, direct-rail service to communities underserved by mass transit
      • More than 60% of ridership projected to be north-bound
      • Largest time-savings achieved will be to points north
    • Support economic development in the East Bronx
    • Improve mobility and regional connectivity

    Project Approach

    Penn Station Access will be a design-build project. A design-build project delivery system will allow the project team to gain early construction input, make use of innovative technical approaches, drive the schedule, and inject competition into the process.
