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.

Weekend of Apr. 2nd

Good afternoon everyone.¬†This 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.

Weekend of Mar. 26th

Good afternoon. Overall, this is not a good weekend on the subway. More so if you’re riding the Lexington Ave or Broadway lines. Regarding the former, all service is suspended south of the Brooklyn Bridge station. Along with that, 4 trains are running local in both directions through the entire line and 5 train service is curtailed to Grand Central. As usual, 3 trains will make up for the lost service in Brooklyn.

On Broadway, there is absolutely no service between 57 Street and Queensboro Plaza. Also, R trains are running via 53rd Street and 6th Avenue in both directions while N trains run it’s late night version of service all weekend, making all stops between Manhattan and Brooklyn. And to make up for the reduction in service, Q trains will run local between 57 Street and Canal St.

There are also a few other service disruptions to contend with. There is no 3 train service between 96 Street and 148 Street. Also, Jamaica-bound F trains are running via the E-line from 5 Avenue to Jackson Heights. On the Staten Island Railway, there is a reduction in service between St. George and Grasmere, with trains running every half-hour between the two stations.

Weekend of Mar. 19th

Good afternoon. Before we get to this weekend’s service disruptions, I’ve received news the MTA is planning on shutting down part of the M-line in order to rehabilitate the 100+ year old structure starting Summer 2017. While subject to change, mainline M train service is expected to be rerouted to Broadway Junction on the J-line through the duration of this project. I’ll keep you up to speed on the latest regarding this disruption.

In the meantime, we’ve got the usual mess of weekend diversions to contend with. Once again, there is no 4 train service in Brooklyn. Customers will have to use the 2 and 3 trains as an alternative. Speaking of the Lexington Ave line, 5 train service is completely suspended again. C trains are not running between 145 Street and 168 Street. Wrapping up the list of partial line closures, 7 trains are not running between Times Square and Queensboro Plaza and L trains are only running as far west as Union Square.

There are also a few other service changes in effect. Fix and Fortify work will also affect the A and C-lines, forcing both lines over to the Rutgers St tubes.

There are also a few express runs, mainly on the 7 and F-lines. Check out the map for the details.

Weekend of Mar. 12th

Good evening folks. This weekend marks the beginning of a semi-permanent closure of the Joralemon St tunnels. Off and on for the next few months, 4 train service will not run to Brooklyn. During those times, 3 train service will be extended to New Lots Av overnights.

Other that this, it’s another weekend practically the same as the previous ones. A, C and E trains are once again affected by Fix and Fortify work and the 1 still isn’t running past 14 Street. However, the most important service change is on the 5-line, which is completely suspended for most of the weekend.
