Bx13

  • Original branched north-western terminus of the former Bx49 was at Union Place-Woodycrest Avenue. Service was extended to the Morrisania neighborhood at Walton Avenue-East 167th Street in July 1974.
  • Former Bx49 service was rerouted away from Morrisania, and started serving Washington Heights with former Bx37 service via one-way directions at Woodycrest Avenue and Anderson Avenue in 1977.
  • Former Bx49 split branched service became part of the Bx13 in February 1984.

The frequency of Bx15 service along the entire route was reduced from running every 50 minutes to running every 60 minutes. Supplemental Bx15 service was provided between Fordham Road and 149th Street to maintain the Bx55's frequency. To maintain the transfer to the subway, bus-subway transfers were accepted on the Bx15 overnight. The change was made to eliminate duplicative service, which was lightly patronized. In addition, an unnecessary turn at 147th Street was eliminated. This awkward turn was initially done because a support pillar of the Third Avenue Elevated had prevented northbound buses from turning directly from Willis Avenue to Third Avenue. This pillar had been gone for some time.[71]
