    Like the title implies, for the 6th thread in the DWTTC series, I took the Bx36 from Castle Hill to Washington Heights. I took the Bx36 twice, one on a weekday, and another on a Saturday. I also did a trip from Harlem to Fordham on the Bx15 the other week, but I did not take as many shots (well, as many bus shots). Therefore, I will merge the two weeks into this thread.

     

    I didn't take many shots on the weekday trip, but on the Saturday trip, I took some more shots. 

     

     

    This will the sole picture from the weekday trip (1/30, 1:43 PM trip)

    Here's a lowdown of ridership on both trips. You can compare both days to see how they differ (however, the same general trends existed for the most part).

    The following week, I took the Bx15 (Mainly to see ridership when the route isn't on an unexpected detour. When I took it last time, the bus was detoured because of a manhole explosion on Third Avenue in The Hub).

    You can compare the ridership on the detoured Bx15 trip to the Bx15 trip on 2/11 here: https://www.google.c...7478464832&z=14
