Weekend service advisories

By

Before getting to the weekend service changes, I want to thank everyone who contributed a guest column during my vacation this week. While readers may agree or disagree with those other points of view, it’s always interesting to hear what other people have to say about our subway system.

    Hold on a sec… free shuttle buses between 238th and 242nd on the 1? Seriously?

    Why not just tell people to use the Bx9?

    • Or, you know, walk. It’s about four blocks. I think people could manage. What a waste of money.

      • Duke87 says:

        I would just walk, but I’m thinking that maybe if you’re 80 years old and using a cane that option might not be such a good one.

        • Matt says:

          Which is pretty much the demographic makeup of Riverdale.

        • But neither of those two stations is handicap accessible and they both feature staircases from the platform to the street level. I’m guessing the copious amounts of 80 year olds with canes who live in Riverdale aren’t going to be using the subways up there anyway.

          It’s been a while since I went to high school up there, but I don’t remember the geriatric subway crowd along the IRT in the Bronx as being too overwhelming!

    I just remembered, it’s also the last stop on the Westchester Bee-Line bus that connects to the 1. It doesn’t head any further down Broadway.
