History[edit]

White Plains TransCenter at night

The White Plains Railroad Station has been a major transportation hub from its days as a New York Central and Hudson River Railroad station, with trolley routes acquired by the Third Avenue Railway. Throughout the 20th century, trolleys were replaced by buses, many of which were private and localized companies, that were eventually acquired by Bee-LineBus beginning in 1978, it also attracted intercity buses, such as Greyhound, Trailways, Short Line, and other companies. The station was merged with Pennsylvania Railroad transforming it into a Penn Central Railroad station. Buses and trains continued to use the station through the collapse of Penn Central, the acquisition by Conrail and the MTA, the full control by Metro-North Railroad, and the reconstruction of the station during the mid-1980s. The current TransCenter was built shortly after the reconstruction of the aforementioned railroad station.[2]
