The New York City Planning Commission, led by Chair Dan Garodnick, has initiated the review process for the Bronx Metro-North Station Area Plan. The plan is designed to enhance the East Bronx service in conjunction with new Metro-North stations slated for Parkchester/Van Nest, Morris Park, Hunts Point, and Co-op City. The four proposed stations, if approved, will be scheduled to open in 2027 and will connect Bronx residents with crucial job centers across the New York City metropolitan area.
