There is nothing much of history for the (9), Unles you mean the Dyre (9) which was the (5) train's Dyre Avenue (S), until it became the (5) normal

 

If its the Bway line (9). The (9) was introduced for the Skip Stop service on the (1) in 1989, seeing that the (NYCT) wanted to improve services above 137th, as there is a Lot of commuters from West Side Service. (1)(9) made skip stop from 242nd to 137th all day untill 1994 or 95, when the (1)(9) skip stop was cut for Rush Hrs, by 2005 the (9) was cut to help improve service more uptown/bronx..

The (9) lacks much of a history. The sign could be recent, or it could be from before 1989. They're doing a lot of construction so it may look older than it is.

I thought the (9) was discontinued on May 27, 2005.

 

The (9) was discontinued.
