Good evening folks. As the title of this post states, this is the Memorial Day weekend and the unofficial start of the summer. As of this post however, it doesn’t look or feel much like summer. But since this is a post on the service changes and not a weather report, let’s get to it, shall we? You’d think it’d be a relatively light weekend since it’s a major holiday and you’d be right. In a way. There aren’t that many service disruptions in place this weekend, but the few that are scheduled will likely affect your travel plans, especially if you’re traveling between Manhattan and Brooklyn. The L line is suspended between Lorimer St and 8 Av, Manhattan all weekend. The M is extended to 57 St to compensate. The only other major changes in place are on the D in the Bronx (uptown express between 145 St and Tremont Av) and the F (Queens-bound trains run via 53rd Street again). You’ve also got express runs on the downtown 8th Avenue line trains between 59 St-Columbus Circle & Canal St and a one-day run on the uptown 4 in the Bronx. The map has all of this illustrated. Enjoy the long weekend and keep in mind that most of the service changes run through Tuesday morning, not Monday. Also, once again, during the overnight hours tonight (Saturday), MetroCard Vending Machines will only take cash due to system upgrades.
