If the trains in this highly hypothetical situation were to go to GCT, then I think Metro-North could very easily pull out of service the Main/Bergen service. However, considering that some Port Jervis line riders are supposed to get a one-seat ride into NYC anyway once the new tunnels are built, spending billions to get rail service across the TZB to GCT would probably be a waste of money (even if personally I would rather arrive into GCT than the dump known as Penn station )Harriman Station wrote:It would be a very big mistake for Metro-North to get out of Bergen/Main service. A transfer at Suffern would not suffice for the thousands of people commuting to the NYC area. While many Orange/Rockland county commuters are going to Westchester county, many others are going to NYCHmm? The Tappan Zee crossing proposal was all about direct rail service to Grand Central, IINM. A few odd sources are looking for cross-county (i.e. crossing Rockland and Westchester east-west) light rail, but that's not related to commuter rail going to GCT that I can see.
