Weekend of May 21st

Good evening. This weekend is not going to be an easy one if you’re trying to go somewhere. Once again, Fix and Fortify work will reroute the A, C and E trains. There is also no 4 train service running in Brooklyn. On the subject of suspensions, there are a few more to deal with. 1 trains are running on a severely truncated route between 137 Street and 14 Street. D trains are not running between Manhattan and Brooklyn. Finally, service is suspended between E 180 Street and Dyre Av.

There are also a few other major service reroutes to contend with, such as the E and F trains running local in Queens and the N trains running over the West End line in both directions.

The map has the details.

Weekend of May 14th

Good evening. It’s a bit of the same, but with a twist here and there. The 1 trains are still not running past 14 Street and the 4 train service is once again suspended in Brooklyn. This is the last weekend where 6 train are cut back to Parkchester. For once, the 5 is running its normal route between Dyre Av and Bowling Green. There’s not even a reduction of service scheduled. On the other side, work on the Culver line will suspend G service between Hoyt-Schermerhorn Sts and Church Av along with F train service south of Church Av. Wrapping up the list of suspensions, the 42nd Street shuttle between Grand Central and Times Square is closed for the weekend. Also, C train service is cut back to 145 Street again.

In terms of other reroutes, Fix and Fortify work once again affects the A, C and E lines crossing the East River. Nothing new there. Manhattan-bound D trains are running via the Sea Beach line in Brooklyn. Finally, be mindful of the express runs. This weekend, the downtown R trains are really take the cake, running express along Queens Blvd, Broadway and 4th Avenue.

The map is linked below.

Weekend of May 7th

Good evening. This weekend, we have a bit of a reprieve from the usual slew of service disruptions. For once, 4 train service is running between Manhattan and Brooklyn. 1 trains are also running in Lower Manhattan for a change. Don’t celebrate yet though. Service on the 1-line is suspended north of 137 Street. In the Bronx, there is no 5 train service between E 180 Street and Dyre Av, nor are there any 6 trains running north of Parkchester. Finally, service on the Culver line is messed up with absolutely no service south of Church Av and G trains not running south of Hoyt-Schermerhorn Sts.

Check out the map for the details on these and the other service changes in effect this weekend.

Weekend of Apr. 30th

Good evening. It’s another one of those weekends. We’ve got the usual suspects of service changes in place. 1 trains are not running past 14 Street and 4 trains are not running in Brooklyn. The Dyre Ave line is closed to service. Wrapping up the list of suspensions, there is no 6 train service north of Parkchester, nor is there is any L train service east of Myrtle Av.

There are several other reroutes in place as well. Downtown F trains are running via the E-line between Roosevelt Av and 5 Av-53 St. On the subject of the F-line, both the E and F trains are running local in both directions along Queens Blvd. Be mindful of several express and local-only sections.

Weekend of Apr. 23rd

Good evening. It’s more of the same. The 4 still isn’t running to Brooklyn; the 5 isn’t running at all; and there is no 3 train service between Utica Av and New Lots Av. Also, 7 train service is knocked out between Queens and Manhattan, but with a twist. Instead of the usual Times Square/Hudson Yards shuttle train, riders will have to settle for a shuttle bus for service. Finally, this weekend marks the beginning of a multi-weekend suspension of 6 train service north of Parkchester.

Check out the map for the full list of service changes.

Weekend of Apr. 16th

Good evening. This weekend is a bit better than last weekend, but not by much. 1, 4 and 5 train service is still not running normally, the latter of which is completely suspended again. Also, A and C trains once again run via the Rutgers St tubes. Along with those recurring service changes, there are a few other service suspensions to contend with. There are no 7 trains running between Times Square and 74 Street-Broadway. Brooklyn-bound F and L train service terminates at Church Av and Myrtle-Wyckoff Avs respectively. Finally, the last stop for uptown C trains is 145 Street.

Check out the map for the details.

Weekend of Apr. 9th

Good evening. This weekend will be hell on the rails. There is no other way to slice it. Unless you’re using the 7 or G-lines, the only lines unaffected by service diversions, you might want to pack a lot of patience. Either that or seek alternative methods of getting around.

Let’s sort out this mess, shall we? First off, 5 train service is once again completely suspended. While that is the only full line suspension, it doesn’t get much better. There are no 1 trains running south of 14 Street. 4 trains are terminating at the Brooklyn Bridge, running local in both directions through the entire line. Shuttle buses replace 3 train service east of Utica Av. Finally, and this is the big one, D trains are not running between 59 St-Columbus Circle and Coney Island.

Moving over to the other reroutes, Fix and Fortify work affects the A, C and E-lines again, with A and C trains running via Rutgers and the E via the 63rd Street tubes. As mentioned above, there is no D train service in Brooklyn. To compensate, N trains are running via the West End line in both directions with shuttle buses replacing normal Sea Beach service. Adding insult to injury, there are a several pesky express-only sections in place, including the full closure of the 103 Street station on the Lexington Ave line.

All in all, you’re going to want to pay close attention to this weekend’s map.
