Country Club Bus Line extended to Vital Commercial and Transit Hub

Here is news on a new bus line connecting Country Club to the Westchester Square Hub.



On Monday morning, Council Member James Vacca will be joined by other local elected officials and community members to welcome the Bx24 bus line to the Westchester Square Community.

Vacca and others advocated for the new Westchester Square stop at East Tremont and Lane avenues after the Bx14 bus, which used to connect Country Club with Westchester Square, was eliminated in June 2010. The MTA announced that the Bx24 would be extended to Westchester Square in January and the new route officially began on Sunday, April 8th.
