4-Train Express Debuts

Bronx commuters along the 4-train line looking to shorten their morning commute will be pleased with the announcement of a new pilot program set to begin on June 8. The Express 4 Service will operate for an hour each weekday morning rush.

The program, to run until June 26, will consist of four express trains that will serve commuters between 7 a.m. and 8 a.m., Monday through Friday. They will depart from the Woodlawn station at 7:15 a.m., 7:30 a.m., 7:45 a.m., and 8 a.m. After Mosholu Parkway, the train will then stop at Burnside Avenue and then at 149th Street, after which it will return to making all regular stops.

The MTA claims the program will shave almost four minutes off the approximated 21-minute commute from Woodlawn to 149th Street.

Commuters will be alerted to the service by conductor announcements and ads in the stations. Local trains will still service stations bypassed by the Express Service.
