CO-OP CITY - The MTA says it now has the money to bring four new Metro-North stations to the Bronx.

The MTA says the building of the stations is made possible by the deal reached between the city and state to fund a multimillion-dollar renewal and expansion project.

"Today's announcement represents a great day for public transportation in the Bronx ... and is the most significant infrastructure improvement our gorough has seen in decades," says Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr.

Officials say the stations will be at Hunts Point, Parkchester, Morris Park and Co-op City.
