EE Broadway Local 18 Posted August 23, 2010 Share #1 Posted August 23, 2010 Just curiosity: How do you feel about the BX55 bus route? This route replaced the 70(8) Third Avenue line on April 29, 1973 and stayed with us. In the days before MetroCard, the BX55 provided actual, free transfers to the at East 149th Street (I'm not sure if you remember but the transfer was via special booths) and at Gun Hill Road while making the old station stops on Third and Webster Avenues. MetroCard changed the transfer meaning but the BX55 continues to make the old station stops. Now since June 27th, the BX55 pretty much runs only between The Hub (East 149th Street-Third Avenue) and Fordham Plaza with service to Gun Hill Road weekdays only until approximately 7pm.
