Re: Bronx Bus Network Redesign Final Plan Addendum

For the Bx10, easy, it would continue east on West Mosholu Parkway South, north on Jerome Avenue, then follow the current Bx10 routing to Norwood. Unless Scott Tower is bringing that much ridership to the route, there is absolutely no need for it to go down to Bedford Park Boulevard when school/college isnít in session.

I am actually in favor of creating a 2nd route along Allerton Avenue, but I think that they blundered by sending it to Co-op City with the Bx26. Instead, they should have sent it to the Pelham Bay Park (6) station, which would not only give eastern Allerton Avenue riders a connection to a subway line other than the (2) train, it would have also finally provided some direct bus service to that Aldi shopping center on Gun Hill Road, and probably would have saved the MTA some money since it would be a shorter route. I just canít see demand between Allerton Avenue and Sections 1 & 2 being stronger than the potential demand between Pelham Bay Park and Allerton Avenue, but if the MTA and community really think that there is, then again, I am not going to pretend like I know whatís best for them.

In regards to the Bx28/Bx38, you shouldnít have to take a grand tour of Norwood to get to the (4) train, which is something that not even the MTAís original plan tried to fix (🤡). As I posted here before, I wish that they rerouted the Bx28 down to Fordham via the Bx34ís route, taking over that lineís duties, while the Bx38 continues west on Gun Hill Road, south on Jerome Avenue, west on West Mosholu Parkway South, then follow the current Bx28 route to Fordham.

I do however believe that once OMNY goes into full force, the MTA will add artics and implement some sort of SBS service on Gun Hill Road, especially with Metro North coming to Co-op City soon.
