Map: FASTRACK on the IND Concourse line

by Benjamin Kabak

During FASTRACK, the nearby 4 train will provide alternative travel for the IND Concourse Line. (via Second Ave. Sagas on Instagram)

The Yankees are out of town this week visiting the Cleveland Indians, and thus a large portion of the IND Concourse Line’s weeknight spring and summer riders won’t be needing subway service. To that end, starting in just under an hour and lasting each night from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. this week, Transit is bringing FASTRACK to the Concourse line north of 161 St.-Yankee Stadium.

Here’s the nitty-gritty: D train service is suspended between 205th Street and 161st Street in both directions. B train service will end early each night, and Bronx-bound D trains will skip 155th St. Customers should take the 4 just a few blocks to the west instead. Shuttle buses will run in between 205th St. on the D and Mosholu Parkway on the 4 only.

This is the same service patterns Transit implemented back in January when the agency first brought FASTRACK to the Bronx. If you’re interested in learning all there is to know about FASTRACK, stop by my event at the Transit Museum tomorrow night.

And in completely unrelated news, if you’re reading my site and haven’t yet checked out today’s XKCD comic — or the large version — do so immediately. You’ll see why.

The “Robert Moses High Speed Line” between SI and DC made me it for me.

Don’t get it.

I assume it’s that such a line would be a stupid idea (like Moses’ highways) and would clearly never be built (like any rail project while he was around)

Yep. His opposition to rail projects in general and rail over the Verrazano Bridge in particular.
