  1. Surprisingly, there wasn't too much confusion (from what I've seen) with the to Burnside. It's much easier to denote them as to Burnside and run them express than to describe that "select trains will run express from 149th Street to Burnside Avenue, and end", and "select trains terminate at Bowling Green", because it wasn't a 50-50 split of each. Also, that in itself makes things much more complicated for those going to Bronx and Brooklyn destinations. If trains made stops at 161st and 167th, there would be a lot of time wasted by having conductors explain that the train only goes to Burnside (specifically at 161st). Going southbound, most people should realize that the will make the same stops as the up to Bowling Green and that they run on the same line into Manhattan, so it wouldn't be too confusing for train riders.

  3. Multiple Impacts Posted: 10/20/19 6:59 PM There are multiple delays and impacts to northbound , and service while we investigate an ongoing signal malfunction that caused a train's brakes to activate at Times Sq-42 St. Based on Subway Time: NB and trains are running via 6th Avenue.
  4. Part Suspended Posted: 10/19/2019 6:27PM Southbound train service is ending at Church Av while our crews work to correct a signal problem at 18 Av. The last stop on some northbound trains will be Kings Hwy. For service to/from Stillwell Av, consider taking the B68 bus.

  6. In an effort to steer things to some normalcy... It is 1:00 AM on a Saturday. Background: The connection from the 8th Avenue Line to 53rd Street is unusable NB. All of 53rd Street is unusable SB due to signal maintenance and signal repair. trains are running to/from 2nd Avenue WTC is not accessible All Broadway service is running on the local track. Scenario: The 6th Avenue line had to be taken out of service at midnight to fix signals which severely delayed service earlier on. No service is able to run on 6th Avenue in Manhattan. Broadway line remains in service, but there has been a person hit by a train on the SB local tracks at Prince Street. Reroute away. Note: You must first deal with the 6th Avenue situation, then deal with the Broadway Line situation to get a complete list of changes.
  7. I'm assuming that in those cases, the trains only made drop-offs. I did see the readings on Broadway and 59th Street stations past midnight.
  8. Not being mentioned on the MTA website, but NB trains are running via 6th Avenue. Some and trains have also joined in.
  9. The situation has not improved much. What's worse is that the and trains are starting to get rerouted onto 6th Avenue. Multiple Impacts Posted: 10/15/2019 9:25PM There are service changes and delays on and trains because of a Con Ed power problem affecting our signal system at West 4 St. Southbound trains are running on the local track from 145 St to Canal St. Some southbound and trains are running along the line from 59 St-Columbus Circle to 47-50 Sts-Rockefeller Center, then on the line to Jay St-MetroTech. Southbound trains are running on the express track from 145 St to 59 St-Columbus Circle. Some southbound trains are running along the line from Jackson Hts-Roosevelt Av to West 4 St-Washington Sq. Some southbound trains are running along the line from Queens Plaza to Bergen St. We appreciate your patience while we work with Con Ed to restore regular service.

  11. With the way MTA typically releases materials (usually Fridays and on rare occasion on weekends), we could potentially see it at the end of this week. Or maybe next week, since "mid-October" is a very general term, and can be described in different ways by different people (which in this case, works to their advantage).
  12. ^^^ Based on Subway Time: Some SB trains are running on the between Roosevelt Avenue and Canal Street, then via the to Jay Street.
  13. Part Suspended Posted: 10/14/2019 1:46PM There are service changes and delays in train service while we investigate the source of smoke between 125 St and 3 Av-138 St. trains are not running between 125 St and 3 Av-138 St in both directions. See a station agent for a courtesy pass for continued train or bus service. For service to/from 125 St, consider taking nearby Bx15 bus service. Directions to/from 3 Av-138 St: http://bit.ly/2JEKg0k
