Metropolitan Transportation Authority officials held a ribbon-cutting ceremony Friday to celebrate the reopening of two Bronx 6 train stations.
The seven-month-long renewal project at the Castle Hill Avenue and Middletown Road stations included replacing floors and ceilings, as well as creating new boarding areas for riders with disabilities.
"As we develop our 2015 through '19 capital plan, we look to you for your support in getting the state and federal funds for projects like the one we're here to celebrate today," said Carmen Bianco, president of MTA New York City Transit.
"Yes, it is," said one commuter. "It is worth the wait. Definitely. It needed a change."
Buhre Avenue and Zerega Avenue stations will close in July as part of the $109 million five-station renewal project along the Pelham line in the Bronx.
