Rye is a Metro-North commuter rail station that serves Rye, New York via the New Haven Line. During the spring and summer months, the Playland amusement park is accessible from the station via the seasonal 75-Playland route on the Bee-Line Bus System; this service provides a sizeable source of additional ridership in non-peak hours.

For many years, Rye was the eastern Westchester County station for Amtrak,[2] until it was replaced by New Rochelle in October 1987.[3]

Rye is 24.1 miles from Grand Central Terminal and the average travel time from Grand Central is 50 minutes.

As of August 2006, weekday commuter ridership was 2,470, and there are 696 parking spots.[4]
