Four Bronx token booths close

Starting on Sunday, subway riders at four Bronx train stations will have to do without their token booths. The MTA says closing 62 token booths throughout the city was necessary because it will save the state money. Six of them are in The Bronx. The first four will be closed staring Sunday. The booths closing are on the D-lines at the Bedford Park Boulevard Station, Fordham Road, 167th Street along the Grand Concourse the booth on Pelham Parkway and White Plains Road.Without the token booths, many Bronx residents are concerned for their safety. The MTA says subway safety is the police responsibility and not theirs.The other two token booths scheduled to shut down is the two-line in East Tremont and the four-line on East 149th Street and the Grand Concourse. The MTA says those should be shut down by the end of the year.
