WESTCHESTER -

Liberty Lines buses will roll through Westchester for the next five years.

Westchester County Executive George Latimer announced a new deal Monday to keep the buses in the area through 2023.

The deal is a $136 million contract for transit workers that Latimer says will save taxpayers $20 million by paying less in insurance costs.

About 700 transit workers in Westchester are employed by Liberty Lines, represented by Local 100. 

The deal also avoids any paycuts and layoffs.
