The station opened on September 10, 1932.[1][5] It has two tracks and one island platform,[6] 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 a 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.[7]

The 174th Street Yard, used to store trains assigned to the C service, is adjacent to this station to the east.[6]

The station is planned to be rehabilitated as part of the 2015–2019 MTA Capital Program.[8]


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.[9] The elevators were installed in November 1989, making the station one of the earliest to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990. The 177th Street exit offers a direct passageway into the basement of the George Washington Bridge Bus Station, but it includes stairs.

  • Handicapped/disabled access
    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.[9]
  • Exits at the southwest and southeast corners of Fort Washington Avenue and 175th Street.[9]

There is also a closed exit at the south end of the station that leads to the southeast corner of 174th Street and Fort Washington Avenue via a passageway. The passageway was not monitored and was closed to improve security. In June 1994, the MTA Board approved a plan to permanently close the entrance, allowing the passageway to be sealed with brick-and-mortar with the street staircase slabbed over. At this point, the entrance had been closed for several years. A public meeting was held on May 1994, along with proposed station access changes at other stations.[10]
