Re: Original MaBSTOA Route Assignments Help

Posted by Waynejay on Wed Jul 22 09:31:18 2009, in response to Original MaBSTOA Route Assignments Help, posted by 33rd Street on Wed Jul 22 01:12:53 2009.

That sounds about right. Since I was born in the 60s, I didn't really start knowing the routes and depots until the mid 70s at the earliest. I do know some stuff had moved around by then. For instance, M8, M11, M14, M16, M21, M26 were at Hudson depot. I never knew the Bx30 ever operated from AMS. I do remember it being at 146th (OFS) until it was combined with the old Bx31 to from today's Bx19.

At Coliseum:

The 5A later became Bx54
The 17 (today's Bx26) used to be 15C
There was also the 15B which became Bx19 and later eliminated.
Also the 15A became later it was extended to Co-Op City became Bx6 (now Bx30).

This is how I remember the other Bronx routes when I was a kid in the 70s.


1 Concourse-138th Street
2 Concourse Hub
3 Prospect Ave (now Bx17)
4 Bainbridge Ave (now Bx34)
10 (now Bx7)
20 Bronx Park-Van Cortlandt (now Bx9)
24 Bailey Ave
34 163 Street Crosstown (now Bx6)
35 167 Street Crosstown
37 Ogden Ave (now Bx13
38 University Ave (now Bx3)
41 Webster Ave

And of course the Bx55

West Farms

25 Morris Jerome Ave (now Bx32)
26 Boston Rd Morris Park Ave (now Bx21)
27 Clason Point
28 Williamsbridge (now Bx39)
29 Third Ave Willis Ave (now Bx15)
31 Southern Blvd (combined with 30 to from today's Bx19)
32 St Anns Ave (eliminated)
33 138 Street Crosstown
36 180 Street Crosstown

Even later when the borough prefixes were added to the rollsigns... West Farms signs had some reading that I could never figured out. They were:

1 Shorehaven, 2 Shorehaven and 3 Shorehaven
