Late again. Let’s just jump right into this. It’s the last weekend for the Lenox Avenue shutdown, the short turns of the northbound 1 trains and the express runs of the downtown 6 trains in Manhattan. The 7 is still truncated to Queensboro Plaza (as it will be through the end of the month). Also, Central Av on the M line will be closed starting this weekend through August. Use the B54 bus for alternate service. Downtown N and R trains run express in Manhattan; downtown 4 and 5 trains run local south of Grand Central. For more service changes in place this weekend, consult the map below. Enjoy the weekend; it’s supposed to be nice weather-wise.
Good evening folks. Hope you had a good week. First off, a reminder that fares on the buses and subways will go up this Sunday. Alright, with that out of the way, let’s jump into this weekend’s service disruptions. Continuing from last week are the shutdowns of the Lenox Avenue line as well as the ever-ongoing one for the 7 line west of Queensboro Plaza. We also have the entire M line replaced by shuttle buses for the weekend. C and D trains are flip-flopped again with uptown C trains running express and uptown D trains run via the 8th Avenue local. Also rounding out this weekend’s disruptions are several more express runs on Broadway, Lexington Avenue and Queens Blvd. The map as always has all the details. Enjoy your weekend.
Since I’m pressed for time, let’s jump right into this, shall we? The biggest change in place (besides the ongoing 7 line shutdown) is the closure of the Lenox Avenue line, which will be in effect for the next three weekends. The 3 is completely suspended for the entire weekend (4 trains are running local in Brooklyn to/from New Lots Av as a replacement). 2 train service is split, running from 241 St to 3 Av-149 St and from 96 St to Flatbush Av. Shuttle buses will serve the intermediate stations. There’s also no 5 train service between East 180 St and 149 St-Grand Concourse.
Also in effect this weekend are express runs of the 6, N and R trains in Manhattan and local runs on the A and E & F in Brooklyn and Queens respectively. See the map for details. Enjoy the weekend.
Saturday EDIT: As Amtrak7 pointed out in the comments, there are four shuttle buses running for the Lenox Avenue shutdown. The local buses from 96 St/Broadway run to both 148 St-Harlem and 3 Av-149 St. Local buses from 3 Av-149 St run to 149 St-Grand Concourse as a one-stop shuttle as well as 96 St/Broadway. Watch the signs on the buses to ensure the bus you’re taking is heading to your destination.
Also, uptown 5 trains heading for 149 St-Grand Concourse skip 138 St. The map has been updated to show this.
Well, it’s finally Friday and we all know what that means. Let’s jump right into it, shall we? Highlighting it as always is the 7 line shutdown between Queens and Manhattan and the lack of 5 train service south of East 180 St. There are also several express runs throughout the subway this weekend. Downtown 4 and 6 trains are running express from Harlem to midtown. Uptown A and C trains run express through most of Manhattan. And F trains are running express in Brooklyn. The map has the full details. Just a reminder folks, due to the President’s Day holiday, some service changes are extended into Tuesday morning.
Once again, apologies for the delays in posting. For this weekend, we have more of the same, along with some new additions. The 5 is still stuck in the Bronx, the 7 in Queens. The 4 is running local in Manhattan north of Grand Central. Also, Coney Island-bound F trains are running express between Jay St and Church Av (the G is truncated to Hoyt-Schermerhorn Sts). Brooklyn-bound A and C trains are running via the F line between West 4 St and Jay St and the J trains are being replaced by buses from Crescent St through Jamaica-Van Wyck on the E line. That’s just some of the major changes; the map below has all of them. Enjoy the weekend.
Alright folks, let’s keep this brief because I’m in a bit of a rush. The 7 still isn’t running west of Queensboro Plaza; the 5 is running, but not south of East 180th Street, so we’re basically just swapping the shuttle. Uptown C & D trains are flip-flopped along Central Park West, uptown N & R trains are running express in Manhattan and the 4 is running local for a good chunk of the Lexington Avenue trunk line. If you have to use the N in Brooklyn, be advised that trains are running on the D line making express stops, towards Coney Island on Saturday, from Coney Island Sunday. The map has all the details. Enjoy the weekend.
Well it’s Friday again and damn is it a cold one or what? Let’s jump right into it, shall we? First off, let’s start with some post-Sandy updates. First and foremost, there has been some news about South Ferry that has come out recently and unfortunately, it doesn’t look good. The MTA is projecting a three-year closure of the new station because of the severity of the damage sustained from the surging salt water. I hope that timetable can be improved, but it doesn’t look good. Secondly, while this doesn’t affect the weekend service, the weekday service for the H Rockaways shuttle will change starting Monday. Instead of service ending after midnight each night, that will only happen on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. Mondays, service will begin between 4 & 4:30 AM and end around 9:30 PM. Tuesdays through Thursdays, service will begin around 5 AM. Trains will stop running the same time as it will on Mondays.
With that out of the way, let’s get to this weekend’s disruptions. Highlighting the service changes for the week are the lack of 5 train service at all, no 7 trains running west of Queensboro Plaza and the shutdown of the Livonia line again. And that’s not even half of the disruptions. Queens-bound F trains are running express in Brooklyn and via 53rd Street in Manhattan. There are no G trains running south of Hoyt-Schermerhorn. Bronx-bound 4 trains are running express between 125 St and Burnside Av. The map below has all the details, as well as some service changes not listed above.
