Overview

The Concourse Line runs from 145th Street in Manhattan (lower level) to 205th Street in the Bronx. Due to the Grand Concourse having grade separations at cross streets many stations have an exit at platform level or, in the case of one station, going down to exit from the subway, as well as the traditional going up to exit via a mezzanine. The line parallels the IRT #4 Woodlawn/Jerome Ave. line which is one and a half blocks further west, a clear example of the attempt by then Mayor Hylan to try to put the IRT and BMT out of business via direct competition.

Proposals have been made to extend this line past 205th Street into the East Bronx but when the city acquired the Dyre Ave. Line this idea was shelved.

All stations along this line feature the standard IND station name in white on black tile. All stations are local with two wall platforms except where noted as having island platforms.
