Review the BxM18 Route Summary


The BxM18 routing will change. Service will be rerouted from the Major Deegan Expressway and 5th Avenue to operate via Inwood and the Henry Hudson Parkway to serve Hudson Yards and Downtown. The proposed change will minimize the time the bus spends on heavily congested local Manhattan streets and provide Riverdale and Inwood customers with new fast, direct service to Hudson Yards.


No BxM18 stops will be removed along the new alignment. The average distance between stops will be 1,554 feet.

See the full stop list on page 308 of the Final Plan.


The BxM18 schedule will change. Service spans will begin earlier on Weekdays. The frequency of service for Weekdays will be reduced in the AM peak period. The PM peak period will remain unchanged.
