Review the Bx36 Route Summary

Route

The Bx36 routing will change as part of the larger redesign effort to improve crosstown service by streamlining the Bx11Bx35, Bx36, Bx40, and Bx42. The new Bx36 will still travel between Soundview and Washington Heights, but will now operate on East Tremont Avenue instead of East 174 and East 180 Streets. The new routing will continue to serve the West Farms and East Tremont neighborhoods. However, it will avoid its existing indirect routing along Boston Road. Modified Bx11 and Bx40 routings will provide new crosstown service to riders on East 174 Street and on East 180 Street, respectively.

Key connecting routes include: Bx1Bx2Bx3Bx9Bx41 Select Bus Service, and Q44 Select Bus Service.

Stops

Twenty-one percent (18 of 86) of Bx36 stops along the new alignment will be removed, improving stop spacing from 795 feet to 1,009 feet. By removing these stops, we’ll improve reliability along the route.

See the route profile with full stop list.

Schedule

The Bx36 schedule will not change. The Bx36 will have the same service frequency and span as it currently does. Due to the routing change, ridership will be closely monitored, and schedules will be adjusted accordingly.
