Bx-9 - Eastchester Road is rerouted via Schieffelin Avenue, 229th Street and Laconia Avenue


It was this re-routing that allowed them to discontinue the Bx-14 A Edenwald Shuttle.

Actually, it would be to West 263rd Street and Riverdale Avenue, while the West 246th Street terminus was on the Henry Hudson Parkway Service Road. The #M100 stayed that way going to/from 263rd/Riverdale until around February 1989.

I believe that the 1970 extension to 246th Street lead to the discontinuance of the Bx-10 A Spuyten Duyvil line.

I have a 1990 Manhattan map that shows the M100 to the Bronx. 1993 does not. So it would have happened between those two.

And still stands as the Bx31 today.

That was around the same time the Bx20 was introduced and the Bx7 extended to 168/Broadway.

Actually, it was the first major M-100 extension in the MaBSTOA era - to 239th Street, in 1965 - that led to the Bx-10A's discontinuance.

Sounds like the Bx-14A was a weekday route, given its January 8 discontinuance - and the January 11 rerouting of Bx-9.

Your absolutely correct. I saw the Bx-10A once but never had a chance to ride it.
