THE BRONX - Bronx bus riders can now take advantage of expanded service from the Pelham Bay Park 6 train station to the Hutchinson Metro Center.

The MTA says 24-hour bus service from the Pelham Bay Park 6 train station to the Hutchinson Metro Center took effect July 3.

The bus service expanded in 2014 to benefit medical offices and businesses surrounding the Hutchinson Metro Center. This new 24-hour service comes in time for the new 911 call
center opening next to the Bx24's last stop.

Bus riders say it's a great accommodation.

The new service is available for more than 1,000 call center workers to use if they would like to. It also makes it easier for Bronx residents and visitors to get to the hub of activity any time
of the day, including weekends.
