People accessing Resorts World Casino New York City from the Aqueduct-North Conduit Avenue subway station will no longer have to wait for a shuttle or walk in the elements. The casino is constructing a covered walkway to allow people to walk from the station to the casino and be protected from rain or snow. The project is expected to be completed by mid summer.

The new walkway will lead to the stairs of the Aqueduct Racetrack station, and to an enclosed pedestrian bridge that opened last summer connecting the Aqueduct Racetrack station — several hundred feet north of the Aqueduct-North Conduit Avenue stop — to the casino building.

The Aqueduct Racetrack station only serves Manhattan-bound trains. Passengers coming to the casino from Manhattan have to get off at the Aqueduct-North Conduit Avenue stop and either transfer to a train heading to Manhattan, walk or wait for a shuttle bus.

The casino will still run shuttle buses to and from the station entrance for those who do not wish to walk.
