175th Street (also known as 175th Street – George Washington Bridge Bus Terminal) is a station on the IND Eighth Avenue Line of the New York City Subway. Located in the neighborhood of Washington Heights in Upper Manhattan, at 175th Street and Fort Washington Avenue, it is served by the A train at all times.

Station layout

The station opened on September 10, 1932. It has two tracks and one island platform, with single green columns in the center of the platform rather than the double columns found near the platform edges at other stations. The tilework in this station is plain, and the station lacks the maroon-colored tile bands that are present at adjacent stations along the line.

It is linked by an underground tunnel to the George Washington Bridge Bus Station. The tunnel, which is maintained by the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, is not wheelchair-accessible, as using it requires traversing a short flight of stairs between the tunnel and the station mezzanine. This tunnel is closed at night between 1 a.m. and 5 a.m.

The 174th Street Yard, used to store trains assigned to the C service, is adjacent to this station to the east.

The station is planned to be rehabilitated as part of the 2015–2019 MTA Capital Program.

Exits

The full-time exits are at 175th Street and 177th Street. The station is fully accessible, with an elevator at the northeast corner of 177th Street and another from the mezzanine to the platform. The elevators were installed during a 1990s Americans with Disabilities Act renovation, and features one of the system's oldest ADA elevators.

  • Exits at the northwest, northeast, and southwest corners of Fort Washington Avenue and 177th Street. The northwest corner has two stairs, the southwest corner has one stair, and the northeast corner has one stair and one elevator.
  • Exits at the southwest and southeast corners of Fort Washington Avenue and 175th Street.
  • Bus service

    The station and the nearby George Washington Bridge Bus Terminal are served by ten local MTA Regional Bus Operations routes and various interstate bus routes.
