Weekend of Aug. 29th

Good evening everyone. We have yet another difficult weekend on the rails. While there are some improvements, a few of the service changes in place last week have carried over to this weekend. The 1 is still not running past 14 Street. There still isn’t any train service between E 180 Street and 149 St-Grand Concourse. A and C trains continue to run via the F-line between W 4 Street and Jay St. Finally, E and F trains will run local along Queens Blvd. Adding to that list, there are no 3 trains running between Utica Av and New Lots Av. Also, shuttle buses are replacing N trains, which are running along the West End line in both directions, between 59 St/4 Av and Stillwell Av.

Rounding out this weekend’s mess, downtown F trains are running on the E-line from Roosevelt Av to Rockefeller Center. We seem to have traded a Culver express for a Brighton express since Manhattan-bound Q trains are running express only between Kings Hwy and Prospect Park.

In a bit of good news, the 5 is once again running for the weekend, even if it is just as the Dyre Ave shuttle. Also, for the 18,000th time this year, M train service has been extended to the Chambers St J-line station. Finally, Rockaway Blvd on the A-line is once again open in both directions.

Weekend of Aug. 22nd

Good evening folks. This weekend’s service disruptions should be familiar. Especially since most have been carried over from last weekend. The 1 is still not running past 14 Street, the 2 trains are replaced by shuttle buses in the Bronx, and 5 train service is completely suspended. The only new suspension of service is on the Staten Island Railway. Shuttle buses are running in lieu of trains between Tompkinsville and St. George. Concerning reroutes, the A and C are still running on the F-line between W 4 Street and Jay St and will continue to do so until the end of the month. Most of the express and local runs from last week are still in effect this weekend. The main exception is on the Brighton line, where there will be normal service for the first time all summer if I’m not mistaken.

Weekend of Aug. 15th

Good afternoon everyone. I hope you enjoyed that slight reprieve from the major service disruptions last weekend. This weekend, we have quite a few big service changes in place. Once again, the 5 is completely suspended and will remain so in some way or another for the next few weekends. Shuttle buses are also replacing train service between E 180 Street and 149 Street-Grand Concourse. The 1 is yet again suspended between 14 Street and South Ferry. Rounding out the list of line suspensions, E trains are rerouted from Jamaica Center to 179 Street with shuttle buses running in their place.

There are also several major reroutes in place as well. A and C trains are running via the F-line in both directions between W 4 Street and Jay St. The D and the N are doing their usual route flip-flop in Brooklyn. Finally, the E and F are running local through the entire span of the Queens Blvd line.

Check out the map for the details, along with the scattered express and local runs.

Weekend of Aug. 8th

Good afternoon everyone. It’s a much better weekend in terms of service disruptions than it has been for the past few weeks. The biggest change in place is on the A and C-lines. Trains will be running on the F-line in both directions between W 4 Street and Jay St. Also, E train service between Jamaica Center and Kew Gardens will be replaced by shuttle buses. Other than that, we have the usual slew of express runs, including those on the 7 and F. Check out the map for the details.

Weekend of Aug. 1st

Well, we’ve reached the midway point of summer and it’s actually starting to feel like it. To prevent people from standing on sweltering platforms waiting for trains that aren’t coming, you’ll want to pay attention to this week’s service disruptions. First off, the 5 is running again. Don’t celebrate because it’s still split with no service between E 180 Street and 3 Avenue. The 2 trains are the alternate mode of service for most of the suspension. However, there are no 2 trains running from 3 Avenue to 96 Street. Because of that Lenox Ave suspension, 3 trains are not running at all this weekend. 4 trains are picking up the slack in Brooklyn, running local to New Lots Av.

Speaking of partial line suspensions, there are no J and M trains running between Brooklyn and Manhattan during the daytime hours. M service is cut back to Myrtle Av-Broadway while J trains are not running past Hewes St. Shuttle buses are only bridging the gap between Hewes St and Essex St, so expect heavier crowds on the Lexington Ave line.

Rounding out this weekend’s service changes, Coney Island-bound D trains are running on the Sea Beach line again. Also, Brooklyn-bound N and Q trains are running on the R-line between Canal St and DeKalb Av. Be mindful of the ever-present express runs scattered about.

Enjoy the weekend and stay cool.

Weekend of July 25th

Good evening everyone. This weekend, we have more of the same carrying over from last weekend, which means almost every line is affected by service disruptions. The 5 trains are still not running. 2 train service is once again suspended between E 180 Street and The Hub. 1 trains are also not running past Chelsea. Finally, N trains are running over the D-line in both directions between 36 Street and Coney Island.

Adding onto those service changes, we have a 3- and 4-line suspension between Utica Av and New Lots Av, along with another suspension of service on the Lefferts Blvd branch of the A-line. There is also a plethora of express and local runs throughout the subway, so keep on the lookout for those. The map has everything illustrated for you. Click on the link below.

Weekend of July 18th

Hello everyone. It’s another crazy weekend on the rails. Basically, most of last weekend’s service disruptions have carried over to this one. That means no 5 trains, the F desperately trying to be a C train and a metric ton of express runs. One major difference however is on the N line. This weekend, shuttle buses are replacing trains between 59 Street and Stillwell Av while N trains are rerouted over the West End line in both directions.

Enjoy the weekend.
