- Metro-North Railroad - Harlem line, service to Mount Vernon East (New Haven line) and Mount Vernon West and Fleetwood (Harlem line) stations from New York City's Grand Central Terminal takes about 30 minutes.

Several parkways (no trucks!) are nearby, including the Bronx River Parkway just to the west, the Hutchinson River Parkway just to the west, and the Cross-County Parkway, which provides cars (not trucks!) access to the Saw Mill River Parkway and the New York State Thruway. Interstate 95 is just south of the city.
