The Bronx-bound 2 line serves the zoo's Bronx River entrance, also identified as gate B. Passengers should get off at the Pelham Parkway station and head west to the entrance. The Seventh Avenue express train (the 2 line) serves all most transited Manhattan stations, including 42nd and Times Square.

Passengers should always check with the Metropolitan Transportation Authority for service interruptions and hours of operation. The Bronx Zoo is also accessible via bus. The express BxM11 stops along Madison Avenue in Manhattan and goes directly to gate B. From Queens, buses Bx9 and Bx19 stop at the zoo's pedestrian entrance at 183rd Street and Southern Boulevard.
