Hudson Link is an inter-county transportation provider for the lower Hudson Valley of New York state.

Operation is contracted to Transdev.

History

The Hudson Link system was created out of the necessity for an improved transportation system between the east and west sides of the Hudson River. They primary function of the brand is to connect Park & Ride lots or town centers throughout the lower Hudson Valley with Metro North commuter railroad stations (For commuters heading to/from New York City) and major towns (Nyack, Tarrytown, and White Plains, among others). Hudson Link replaced the existing Tappan ZEExpress service, operated by Transport of Rockland (ToR),[1] but was significantly expanded to include new routes to new municipalities and to provide more service on the weekdays and weekends.

Phase 1 of the system began operation on Monday, October 29th, 2018.[2]
