The taxis in the Bronx aren't your typical yellow cabs found in Manhattan. They are usually Lincoln town cars with leather interior, and very comfortable. Most of the drivers speak Spanish as a first language, At least in this area around Fordham Road. I always had a good experience using these cabs and if you speak Spanish, even better.
How to know if the car is a cab...If the cab thinks you are looking for one they will honk the horn, they arent marked specifically always but on the license plate it will say NY T&L (taxi and livery). Most are Lincoln town cars like the one in the picture.

Directions: Subway, D train to Fordham Road. the exit is on Grand Concourse and 188th and you will need to go one block towards Fordham road. You could walk down 188th all the way but I feel Fordham road is safer. (slightly uphill and to the north) Take a right on Fordham and walk downhill past all the clothes stores, past Fordham University (on left) and about a block after the White Castle at a gas station turn right onto Arthur Avenue.15 minutes.
Or take Metro North train from Grand Central Station in Manhattan (its more expensive but much faster) to Fordham Station You will take a left out of the station onto Fordham road past Fordham Univ. till Arthur avenue. 10 minutes maximum. This way saves you the walk through the crowds of people shopping on the Fordham Road towards the subway stop. It has a latin american feel, lots of people speaking in Spaish.
Driving, Deegan Expressway to Fordham road (rt) and same as before.

Subway, especially for tourists since traffic is almost always horrific. This is the station for the #1 that does down Broadway in the Bronx from Manhattan.
Nothing beats driving. Roads are full of huge potholes, drivers are crazy, everyone double parks and pedestrians are everywhere. It's like playing Frogger with your car as the frog. If you are a timid driver, DO NOT DRIVE HERE!

The fastest way to get to and around the bronx is by subway/train. There is the MTA New York City transit trains & the Metro North train, that stops at selective areas around the Bronx.
