167th Street is a local station on the IRT Jerome Avenue Line of the New York City Subway. Located at the intersection of 167th Street and River Avenue in the Bronx, it is served by the 4 train at all times.


Station layout

The station has three tracks with two side platforms. The station was opened in 1917, gained additional service from the Ninth Avenue Elevated on July 1, 1918 and was rehabilitated in 2004. It has old-style signs painted over and covered up with new style signs, and features new fare control railings as a crossunder.


Fare control is via a mezzanine under the tracks. Outside fare control, exit stairs go to all corners of River Avenue and 167th Street.

Polo Grounds Shuttle

From 1940 to 1958, 167th Street served as a terminal for the last remnant of the Ninth Avenue Elevated operating from 155th Street (Polo Grounds) to 167th Street. On reaching 167th Street, trains would switch to the center track, change direction, and return to 155th Street on the downtown track. Service was eventually reduced to a single two-car train operating in both directions on the uptown track. In 1958, service was discontinued after the New York Giants left for San Francisco. From the southern end of the station, the ramps leading to the Ninth Avenue line structure can still be seen. These ramps end south of the southwest corner of River Avenue and 164th Street between Gate 8 and the 164th Street parking garage at Yankee Stadium. The next southbound stop was Anderson–Jerome Avenues.
