Earlier this week, MTA New York City Transit officially launched the Bx36 Limited. The new service on the Bx36 was put in place to help save long distance customers up to 8 minutes or 10% travel time. Here are the complete details courtesy of a press release sent to me by MTA New York City Transit:
In order to speed up the trip for customers traveling between Manhattan and the Bronx along the Bx36 route, MTA NYC Transit introduced the Bx36 Limited-Stop this week. The Bx36 Limited will operate on weekdays during the morning and evening rush hours between White Plains Road/Story Avenue in the Bronx and 181st Street/Amsterdam Avenue in Manhattan. The Bx36 Local will continue to make all stops at all times.
The Bx36 Limited-Stop service is expected to save long distance customers up to eight minutes per one-way trip or a 10% savings in total travel time. During the AM and PM peak periods, every other scheduled Bx36 trip will operate as a Bx36 Limited. Westbound Bx36 Limited service will operate from 6:40 a.m. to 8:45 a.m. and from 2:46 p.m. to 6:20 p.m.; eastbound service operates from 6:38 a.m. to 9:57 a.m. and from 2:23 p.m. to 7:31 p.m. on weekdays.
