Andy's Almanac - July 11

Posted by andy on Thu Jul 11 06:51:33 2019

July 11, 1936: the Triborough Bridge (now RFK Bridge) is opened, connecting The Bronx, Manhattan, and Queens, hence the name. On the same day NY City Omnibus inaugurates the final route in its new Manhattan bus network TB/Triborough Bridge. The route has three different variations Manhattan-Astoria, Manhattan-Wards Island, and Bronx-Astoria. It charges ten cents, double the normal NYCO fare at that time.

Today, the Manhattan-Astoria leg is part of Route M60; the Manhattan-Wards Island remains as route M35. The Bronx-Astoria leg was eliminated in the 1980s, I believe. Anyone know the date?
