The #25 change means that buses will only begin at the Yonkers MNRR station, not terminate there (not sure what the logic is)

 

The #7 change basically means that instead of going all the way down to that little "U-turn" area past Columbus Avenue, the buses will just turn left on Centre Avenue to reach Main Street. (Between that and the stop consolidations, maybe they're looking to make the extension to the Yonkers MNRR station cost-neutral)

Typical Westchester. They cut all of their bus service and then dump their residents on our express buses, subways and local buses.   <_<

The BL-43 should not be ending at WCC after serving WMC....

Don't know if it still exists, but there used to also be a NB BL-1C trip that did that very thing.... Never got the logic behind it...

Really? Have the 43 serve Westchester CC and the Medical Center? That's overkill. Couldn't the 40 or 41 serve WCC?

Yup... now they got the 43 running down (key term there) to WCC.....

My gripe isn't that it now serves WCC, it's that it serves WMC before WCC.....

I wonder if anyone's ditched the 41 for the 43 since this change....

That's too much backtracking. They worded it as an extentsion. That's like giving the SAS a stop at 28 St

Well in terms of mileage, either way it'd be an extension....

However.... In terms of the physical route itself, if it served WCC before WMC, it'd be a mid-route diversion..... Having it serve WMC before WCC though, they're right - it is an extension (although being a backtrack as well)....

Having the SAS stop at 28th wouldn't really be akin to either scenario, outside of added duration/runtime.....

I know but it's still unnecessary in my book. Might as well have the 60 serve New Rochelle TC.

No kidding i'm wishing for them to make the last #13 to Tarrytown leave at 1050pm and not 1040pm is outrage because the upcoming CT Transit 11 comes from Stamford at 1045pm and misses at ease the transfer connections with BL 13 leaving at 1040pm...i have a friend who works in Stamford and lives in White Plains he says his shift ends at 930pm and has to take metro north to Port Chester and pay up $3.50 plus $2.75 more via BL 13 of 1040pm. ..with the eased connections not will he only saves up to nearly 4 bucks but some who wish to continuation from Connecticut to White Plains and points west 

 

1000pm CT-S 11 leaves McKinney transportation ctr at Stamford MNR

1043-1048pm CT-S due arriving to Port Chester MNR at intersection of Main St and Westchester avenue 

1050pm LAST BL 13 departs MNR station and i say 1050pm not 1048pm BL operators arriving White Plains at 1120pm and Elmsford sq at 1145pm Tarrytown at 1205am

You want them to run service to a closed amusement park?

No, I want them to serve their residents instead of dumping them on us to move around. They sure as hell don't think we should be using Metro-North, despite how much City dollars subsidize the commuter rail system, but they have no problem using our services.

I see a restructuring of non-Bronx routes in Yonkers and New Rochelle and a restructuring of the #43 on the northern end (i.e. the opposite end of the route). I don't see anything relating to the other Bronx-bound routes.
