Getting to Westchester is Easy
Whether you're driving, flying or arriving by bus or train, Westchester is within easy reach. Over the past decade, the county has made a significant investment to improving its transportation network. Three interstate highways provide quick links to New York City, and public transportation is widely available.
Westchester County Airport, which was called upon to be the first airport in the nation to reopen following the 9/11 terrorist attacks, is conveniently located five miles east of the City of White Plains and approximately 30 miles north of Manhattan. The airport offers a mixture of commercial, business, charter and private flights to satisfy all clientele. Each year 1.9 million passengers travel on some 32,000 commercial flights. On a typical day around 55 commercial aircrafts depart from Westchester Airport's runways. The airport is one of the most active business aviation facilities in the nation, averaging more than 70,000 corporate and charter operations annually, and it is also the home to 300 light aircrafts.
Metro-North, the commuter railroad, can whisk you from White Plains to midtown Manhattan in just 35 minutes. With 775 miles of track, Metro-North goes to 120 stations in seven counties of New York. The Hudson, The Harlem and the New Haven are the three main lines that provide passengers service on the east side of the Hudson River.
Amtrak also serves Westchester County with stops at Yonkers, New Rochelle and on Croton-on-Hudson.
