The Harriman Metro-North station serves the residents of that village, the town and village of Monroe and the town of Woodbury in Orange County. Service is to Hoboken, 45 miles (72.4 km) away via the Port Jervis Line; travel time is about 1 hour and 5 minutes. It is located on NY 17 south of the village.
The station has a very large parking lot (986 spaces), reflecting not only its location in the fastest-growing corner of the county but its proximity to the New York State Thruway (from which it can be seen) and Route 17. A further contributor to its popularity is the nearby Woodbury Commons outlet mall, an international tourist draw for visitors to New York City. There is a weekend-only shuttle bus between the station and the mall.
