Tremont Av (6)


Kingsbridge Road/Grand Concourse, is a Concourse Subway Express station that like all the others has it's own unique personality. The paint scheme is blue pillars on the island platforms, with a line of blue trim along the platform walls. The station has two exits; the main one is towards the southern end of the platforms to Kingsbridge Road and is located on a mezzanine level underneath the platforms, although it's not that big for IND standards, with only three staircases down to it from each platform. Exits lead directly up to the Grand Concourse at street level. There is also an exit at the same level as the subway to Kingsbridge Road's underpass of the Concourse. There is a secondary exit at the extreme northern ends of the platforms to 196 Street that has it's own small mezzanine above the tracks.
