The folks of Yonkers are very dependent on public transportation. Those relocating due to a job in the city can rely on the good ‘ol Hudson River Line (cue Billy Joel song) to get around. You can also invest in a bus pass or hop on the Water Taxi for a scenic commute. The commute, for those working in NYC, is only about 30 minutes and the rent will make you thankful for the train.
Aggressive driver? Welcome home! You will fit right in here. Highway 87/New York Thruway is your best bet to motor in and around Yonkers and the rest of New York and the West Side Highway will bring you into Manhattan about 30 minutes (depending on city traffic).
