EXPRESS BUS FROM MANHATTAN
The BxM11 express bus makes stops along Madison Avenue, between 26th and 99th Streets, then travels directly to the Zoo's Bronx River entrance (Gate B). Please be advised, this gate is on the opposite side of the park from Gate C, so it will be a farther walk to the Schiff Family Great Hall. For your return trip, pick up the bus just outside the same gate at the MTA BxM11 sign (just before the underpass).
In the Bronx, take the Bx9 or Bx19 buses to 183rd Street and Southern Blvd, which is the location of the Zoo's Southern Blvd pedestrian entrance (Gate C). Or take the Bx12 or Bx22 buses to Fordham Road and Southern Blvd, then walk 5 blocks south on Southern Blvd to 183rd Street.
From Queens, you can take the Q44 to 180th Street and Boston Road. You must then walk north (take a right on Boston Road) one block to the Bronx Zoo's Asia gate entrance (Gate A). Please be advised, this gate is on the opposite side of the park from Gate C, so it will be a farther walk to the Schiff Family Great Hall.
ADA-accessible route: #2 train to Pelham Parkway. This station has three elevators that lead down to street level. Head west to the Zoo's Bronx River entrance (Gate B). Please be advised, this gate is on the opposite side of the park from Gate C, so it will be a farther distance to the Schiff Family Great Hall.
This event is presented in collaboration with, and funded by, the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development
