Weekend of July 15th

Good afternoon. If you remember the service changes in effect two weeks ago, you’re in good shape for this weekend. Once again, 5 train service is suspended between 86 Street and 241 Street. 2 trains will run to Wakefield this weekend while shuttle buses replace service along the Dyre Ave line.

Other major service changes include the ongoing suspension of all Queens Blvd service east of 71 Avenue and the reroute of A and C trains over the F-line between W 4 Street and Jay St.

Enjoy the weekend.

Saturday Edit: The Brighton service change has been cancelled for this weekend. The map has been updated to reflect this change.


Weekend of July 8th

Good evening. This weekend marks the beginning of a month-long suspension of service on the Queens Blvd line east of Forest Hills. Track and switch replacement in the area of 75 Avenue is the cause of this massive disruption. Shuttle buses will replace all train service between 71 Avenue and either Jamaica Center or 179 Street. Also, R train service will be suspended between Queens Plaza and 71 Avenue, with E and F local trains replacing normal service.

Besides that major disruption, it’s an otherwise relatively light weekend. A and C trains are once again running on the F-line through the Rutgers tunnels. 5 train service is split at E 180 Street with through service running to/from Dyre Av.

Weekend of May 14th

Good evening. It’s a bit of the same, but with a twist here and there. The 1 trains are still not running past 14 Street and the 4 train service is once again suspended in Brooklyn. This is the last weekend where 6 train are cut back to Parkchester. For once, the 5 is running its normal route between Dyre Av and Bowling Green. There’s not even a reduction of service scheduled. On the other side, work on the Culver line will suspend G service between Hoyt-Schermerhorn Sts and Church Av along with F train service south of Church Av. Wrapping up the list of suspensions, the 42nd Street shuttle between Grand Central and Times Square is closed for the weekend. Also, C train service is cut back to 145 Street again.

In terms of other reroutes, Fix and Fortify work once again affects the A, C and E lines crossing the East River. Nothing new there. Manhattan-bound D trains are running via the Sea Beach line in Brooklyn. Finally, be mindful of the express runs. This weekend, the downtown R trains are really take the cake, running express along Queens Blvd, Broadway and 4th Avenue.

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. 5th

Hello everyone. It’s more of the same this weekend as it was last weekend. 1 trains are still not running past 14 Street. A, C and E train service is affected by Fix and Fortify work. And there are the usual express and local runs scattered about. Another thing to be mindful of this weekend is the reduced service on the 1-line north of 137 Street. Due to construction on the northern part of the line, waits will be twice as long between City College and Van Cortlandt Park.
