The 182nd-183rd Streets station is a local station on the Concourse Line with two platforms and three tracks. It has one set of entryways at 182nd Street/Grand Concourse. Closed entrances led to 183rd Street/Grand Concourse and Anthony Avenue/Grand Concourse; the passageways leading to each are easily seen from mezzanine level.
The station, like many others on the Concourse Line, is in horrible shape – stained and perforated tiles, peeling paint, and rotting platform edges mar the station. That said, MTA completed repairs to select platform stairwells and patches of damaged tile in 2012.
D trains serve this station at all times except rush hours in the peak direction (i.e. to Manhattan in the morning; from Manhattan in the evening) when it runs express; the B provides supplemental rush-hour local service.
