Travel Guide

The Bronx, New York City 

Getting Around


There are more yellow cabs in the Bronx then there were before, but still not as many compared to Manhattan. Flagging for a yellow cab along the streets can test your patience at times and phoning for a livery cab would be a better alternative. If taking the livery cab, phone and inform the cab company your pick-up point and destination, and the operator will inform you the fare. Using the cabs will get you to your destination quickly but definitely a costlier option than public transport.

Trains & Bus
Many of New York City’s subway trains passing through Manhattan end or begin their journey in the Bronx – there are six lines stopping at 70 stations in the Bronx. The subway routes in the Bronx generally run in a north-south direction but not east-west. There is no other choice but to take a cab, MTA bus, or walk (if it is not far) to travel east or west in the Bronx. Buses here are often overcrowded and slow, therefore, plan your travel accordingly.
