The Hudson Line is built along the Hudson River, providing the ride to and from the river towns with a beautiful view. Some of the larger stations on the Hudson Line include Yonkers, Tarrytown, Croton-Harmon, Beacon, and ends at Poughkeepsie in Dutchess County.
The Harlem Line travels through the center of Westchester County, through White Plains, to Eastern Dutchess County. The last stop on the Harlem line is Wassaic Station.
The New Haven Line has the same stops as the Harlem Line until Mount Vernon Station. Then it runs East and ends at New Haven, Connecticut. It provides transportation for the towns along the Long Island Sound. The last stop in New York State is Port Chester; the stop after that is Greenwich, Connecticut.
Although not a popular option for those who have a choice of taking the Metro North, the Coach USA bus have a route from Dutchess County with stops at Rhinebeck, Hyde Park, Poughkeepsie, and Fishkill, which then travels to Orange County, and arrives at New York City.
