Weekend of Mar. 18th

Good evening. While we have a few different service changes from last weekend, a few will carry over from previous weekends. Starting with the returning disruptions, 7 trains are still not running into Manhattan. A and C trains will continue to run via the F-line between W 4 Street and Jay St. Adding on to those service changes, we have a couple of other service suspensions. 5 train service will be replaced by shuttle buses north of E 180 Street, which really isn’t all that surprising. 3 and 4 trains will terminate at Utica Av all weekend. Finally, there is no F train service between Church Av and Stillwell Av.

Enjoy the weekend.

Weekend of Mar. 11th

Good evening. If you’re familiar with last weekend’s service changes, you’re in good shape for this one. It’s a bit better than last weekend, but we still have a few recurring service disruptions. 7 trains are still not running west of Queensboro Plaza. Shuttle buses continue to replace M service along Myrtle Ave. On the Staten Island Railway, train service between Huguenot and Tottenville is replaced by buses as well. Finally, A and C trains are rerouted via Rutgers St on the F-line.

To add on to those disruptions, there is no 2 train service between E 180 Street and 241 Street. Once again, there are no 4 trains running in Brooklyn, which also means that 5 train service is truncated to Grand Central. There are also a few express-only segments, especially on 7th Avenue, where there is no downtown local service between 72 Street and Chambers St.

Before the map, just a reminder that Brooklyn-bound J trains will not stop at 104 Street at all times until Summer due to station rehabilitation.

Weekend of Mar. 4th

Good evening. Well, the work on 6th Avenue has finally ended. Don’t celebrate just yet as we have a whole new set of recurring service changes to contend with. First off, starting this weekend, there will be sporadic closures on the Myrtle Ave line that will likely last through Spring. Secondly, there are several service suspensions and reroutes that will be in effect every weekend this month, including the suspension of 7-line service west of Queensboro Plaza and the re-routing of A and C trains through the Rutgers St tunnel.

There are also some other major service changes as well. 1 trains are not running between 14 Street and South Ferry. 4 trains are running via the 5-line, which is completely suspended this weekend, between 138 Street and E 180 Street. F trains are not running south of Church Av. Finally, for the riders in Staten Island, shuttle buses replace trains south of Huguenot.

Also, there are a slew of one-directional express runs. To wrap up, in a bit of good news, after a long delay, the Pennsylvania Av station has finally reopened after the October crash.
