NEW NYC Subway Transfer Connects 16 Different Lines : Times Square to Bryant Park

The newly opened Times Square to Bryant Park Subway Passageway connects to 16 Different Subway Lines! It runs along the former tracks of the Times Square Shuttle, and connects the Times Square – 42nd Street and 42nd Street Bryant Park Stations. The 42nd Street Port Authority Bus Terminal and 5th Avenue Stations are also connected, making it possible to walk from 5th Avenue to 8th Avenue completely underground within fare control. A new Times Square Shuttle platform has also been constructed, offering wider waiting areas, ADA accessibility, and smaller gaps between the platform and the train.

  2. Now the only thing we need from Times Square 42st is the platform screen doors and ADA accessible transfer from the 7 av lines to 8 av lines (Pretty easy to do since you can just add an entry to the mezzanine between the Downtown 1 2 3 lines and the Platform 7 line.

  3. Thank you for a great, informative tour. What an improvement this new Times Square Shuttle station is over the old tightly curved, narrow-platform original. May have lost a track (and a very special view into the IRT tunnel for Subway geeks), but the wide, straighter platform, combined with the longer trains makes a huge difference and creates a far less intimidating experience. Also really nice that there is now an in-fare connection with the 6th Ave lines, bright with eye-pleasing artwork. Here's hoping it stays both clean and safe. If so, it could be a good model for reviving the Gimbel's Passage (or creating a new passage) from Penn Station over to IND/BMT and PATH complex at Herald Square.
    I also enjoyed your extension of the tour showing the descent to 7 platform at Times Square and heading beyond to ACE. And, while the Subway map doesn't come close to suggesting it, I share your view that getting from Times Square platforms to PABT is a pretty grueling slog 😉 Perhaps it's the combination of heat, ramps, and crowds, but it seems longer than just walking at street level 😉
    Keep up the good work!

  4. Interesting video. Very extensive but not particularly attractive subway network, and those pedestrian tunnels are very long. BTW, are these stations and tunnels ADA compliant? I didn't see an elevator anywhere.

  5. Oh, I do remember taking that passage way going to train 7 couple weeks ago while visiting. Very convenient, but it can be confusing because, as you see in the video, you don't see the any train 7 sign until you get to the BDFM platform.

  6. The R211 cars are no different from the R179 cars. They're boring as Hell. I wish that the R9s (Smokey Joe's) were still in service. The ceiling fans, Straw seats, That overpowering smell of the brake pads and burnt synthetic oil, brings back a lot of memories. I rode the R9s back in the 1970's on the A,CC,J and LL lines.

  7. OMG I never knew you can walk one stop from the 5th Avenue station to the Times Square Station. Back in the 1990's coming from Shea Stadium. If the weather was bad I would transfer from 5th Avenue to the 42nd BMT Broadway Line to go to the Howard Square Station and than take the PATH back to NJ. Sometimes I also took that long walk to the Porth Authorities to take the bus back to NJ too. I never did like that walk because you were right that walk in the tunnel is hot. Thanks again for sharing all the new updates at the Times Square Station
