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.

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.

Weekend of Apr. 2nd

Good afternoon everyone.┬áThis weekend is not as annoying as last week was. Don’t get used to it as next weekend will be especially brutal. This weekend, we have a few partial line suspensions to deal with. Both the Dyre Ave (5) and Nostrand Ave (2) lines are closed for service. There are also no L trains running between Myrtle Av and Canarsie, nor is there any service on the 7-line between Queensboro Plaza and Times Square. Finally, C train service is cut back to 145 Street, but A trains are providing alternate service.

In terms of other reroutes, Fix and Fortify work once again affects the A and C-lines between Manhattan and Brooklyn. There are a few express-only sections, primarily on the Lexington Ave line. The map is linked below.
