W.B.'s Bus Almanac for September 14th

Posted by W.B. on Tue Sep 14 14:12:08 2021


September 14, 1964 - The Book of Last Runs

The Bronx, New York
Manhattan and Bronx Surface Transit Operating Authority
(Surface Transit Division)

Service is discontinued on the summer-only Bx-50 - Freedomland line, as the park closes for good after this season. This route had been started under Surface Transit, Inc. aegis on June 19, 1960 when the Disneyland-derived theme park first opened for business. It was also the second route to bear the Bx-50 number, the first being the Highbridge line of Surface Transportation System which was launched on January 29, 1942, suspended for much of World War II after 1943, and resumed after the end of the war as Bx-49.



September 14, 1970 - The Book of Route Extensions

The Bronx, New York
Manhattan and Bronx Surface Transit Operating Authority
(Surface Transit Division)

Route Bx-24 - Bailey Avenue is extended from West 246th Street and Henry Hudson Parkway to Fieldston Road and Mosholu Avenue.
