Bronx Metro-North Station Area Study

Metro-North is coming to the East Bronx. The regional rail service is estimated to arrive in 2027 with four new train stations at Hunts Point, Parkchester/Van Nest, Morris Park, and Co-Op City.

The stations are part of the MTA's Penn Station Access project, which will connect the East Bronx directly to Manhattan Penn Station.

The coming rail service brings a once in a lifetime opportunity to support Bronxites with access to jobs, housing, amenities, and more. The City and local communities have been planning together since 2018 to ensure the stations are a positive force for the Bronx.

In the coming year, the City will continue to work with the public as we bring a plan for the station areas to life.

About the Plan

The Bronx Metro-North Station Area plan is a work in progress that reflects the community’s vision to ensure Bronxites see the most benefit from the coming stations. The plan would support public and private investments in housing, jobs, programming and more to bring the community’s vision to life.

Recommendations for the station areas were developed with input, ideas, and priorities discussed at a series of public meetings, surveys, and small-group discussions from 2018 through 2022.

Land use recommendations entered the formal public review process in January 2024. The MTA anticipates to open the new stations in 2027.
