New bus service to link White Plains and Westchester County Airport

White Plains – AirLink, a new Bee-Line bus route, will begin on Monday, June 18 and provide express service between the White Plains Metro-North Railroad station, the White Plains Bus Terminal and two stops at the Westchester County Airport – the north complex parking and employment center and the passenger terminal. 

Buses will be scheduled to meet Metro-North trains and Bee-Line connections in White Plains, departing for the airport approximately every 30 minutes, weekdays between 6:35 a.m. and 9:06 p.m.   Buses will depart from the airport on a similar schedule between 7:36 a.m. and 9:36 p.m.

On Saturdays and Sundays and most holidays, service will begin and end at the same times, but morning and midday operations will be hourly; late afternoon and evening service will be every 30 minutes.

Total running time for the route is about 22 minutes from end to end. Seats in the AirLink bus will be removed to accommodate luggage and strollers.

AirLink service will charge the regular Bee-Line fare of $1.75 in coins and accept MetroCards.  The MetroCard fare is $2 and includes a free transfer to and from other Bee-Line routes.  Transfers cost an additional 25 cents for coin customers.
