Does anyone know how these local buses run during rush hour: Bx7, Bx9, Bx10? Are they super crowded at certain stops going and/or coming?

Hi Nicole,

As someone who used to take Bx7 and Bx10, I can tell you that they run pretty well. All of these buses may get a little more crowded when you take them from the #1 train on W231st St station during rush hour, but you can do what I used to do - call a cab from the train and take a local cab. They charge about $7 and is definitely a great option if you are coming home late on the train.

If you commute to the city, I would also recommend looking into the express buses: BxM1 (east side), BxM2 (west side) and BxM18 (downtown). They run throughout Riverdale and you can buy an unlimited metro card that will work on the express buses as well as trains for $50/week.
MetroNorth is another great option to commute to the city. Riverdale has 2 stops - Spuyten Duyvil (~25 min to Grand Central) and Riverdale (~28 min to GC). Off-peak the fare is under $5. You can also buy a monthly.

Here is more info on the express buses:

And MetroNorth:

And here are the local cabs:
212-304-1515 - Seaman
718-884-8888 - Miles
718-796-6900 - Target
718-796-2222 - Kingsdale

Yes they do get a little crowded at rush hour. But nothing worse than any other area. Besides, I'd prefer the crowded rush hour bus in this area than another area in the Bronx. ;o) The good news is that there are a lot of buses at rush hour as well so you do get on.

Best of luck to you!

Hello Nicole,

I attached a link where you are able to view all bus routes and track the status and location of each bus. Great way to keep track without following their set time thats usually not accurate. You can now view their exact location and keep track of your time.

Hope this Helps!
