Bx2 Re Routed Perminante!!!

Recommended Posts

I was on the Bx2 today and found out that it no longer travels along 165, 3rdAve and Melrose due to work on Melrose . The bus I was on went Straight down Grand Concourse and made a left on 138 like the Bx1....

Now for all of that there's no need for those 2 route if they don't break apart at all!

 

There's also changes on the Bx4, Bx15,Bx21, Bx41, and Bx55 as well. Pretty much all the buses that goes to the Hub!..... I dunno what those changes are yet!

I heard them the day they rerouted it talking to the B/Os of each bus, they said something about turning on 149st, but now they're going to 138st? I wonder if there's construction on both 165st and 149st. :eek:

I see a ton of traffic bottlenecks with this.

 

The Bx41 twisting and turning along those streets crossing the Bx15, Bx21, and Bx55.

 

The Bx2 turning on E. 149th Street, that street is one of the slowest streets in the Bronx between Third Avenue and Grand Concourse.

Moving the BX 2 straight to 149th street is a dumb move it make people on 165th street and Melrose Ave pissed off:mad:

 

Yeah. It makes me have to change up. I usually take the 2 to 165 and teller ave, now I have to take the 41 instead to 165 and webster and walk 2 blocks!

I think the TA's trying to do away with the Bx2 but they're going to have to put it back because serves a purpose over there and people aren't going to be happy. What they should have done was give it the same re-route as the 41.

good to know I'm not the only one that feels this way....

 

 

anyway, I don't see what moving the Bx2 from 165th to 149th had to do w/ making vehicular/pedestrian traffic around the hub more feasible....

Ok so after passing by 149 and 3rd, I see why they did the perminant detour, but the detour they gave the 2 was uncalled for. They should have had it follow the 41, but what happened was they turned melrose into a one way street between 149 and 150 going south bound and the 2 and 41 can't go str8 onto 3rd av because of a sement divider that was put there the forces all traffic to turn right! Also going northbound on willis they made that a one way a block before 149 and they also put an extended sidewalk where the 15 and 55 used to stop so now the 15 and 55 stop at the same stop as the 2, 21, and 41 going uptown. They are doing a lot of street work over there.. I think its smart because it prevents cars from speed turning, but it messed up the 41 and the 2 routes badly

Like I said the TA is trying to do away with the BX2. first they cut out the part of the route that makes it different from the Bx1, then they say oh well the BX2 has the same routing as the Bx1 so there's no point in keeping it seperate. and then they cut service back. The whole thing will be if Morrisiana residents complain about it.

When I was on the 19 I saw the 2 turning on GC from 149st. And some running along 149. Also there's bus stops along 149. And they reversed courtland ave one way street so to 2 can turn right southbound.. I dunno what they are doing with the 2, but I see why they are detouring these routes.
