Has MaBSTOA ever planned on extended the Bronx 19 north of its current terminal which is NY Botanical Garden to some where on Bedford Pk Blvd/Allerton Ave.

 

Heres a sample i made:

(A) to White Plains Road and Allerton Avenue

(:o to Lehman College

(C) to Webster Avenue and Bedford Park Blvd

Would this work? Besides it making it a bit longer. But doesn't seem that bad or long tho, I walked to/from Bedford and the Bx19 end and was like a 8-10 min walk, not bad. It can allow customers from Manhattan to connect with Bx25/26 for service aroun Co-Op City and so.

I don't know if it was ever a plan, but I don't think the Bx19 would be a fitting route. It's infamous for its slowness as is, so adding more to the route may make that problem worse. I think, though, that to make it easier, the Bx22 should be extended to Bedford Park at all times. This way, Bx19 riders can make the transfer.

Yeah but if any1 wanted a loop via Co-Op they cant cuz the Bx12LCL/SBS doesnt loop but runs on the SHooping Center area, which would require another transfer, to QBX1, Bx28, 30, 26 etc. Extra fare off the Bx19> bx12(as transfer) and Co-Op City Buses(Fare again)

 

For that have the Bx19 end up at Webster/Bedford and allow connections to the Bx25/26. As well as a transfer to the Bx41/55LTD, Ans MNCRs Harlem Line seeing that the Bx19 doesnt stop at any railroad station.

 

But you do got a point, cuz of the slowness of this route -_-b
