Here an important announcement for Upper Manhattan and Bronx (1) riders from Midnight Saturday(7/11/09)until 5am Monday(7/13/09). There no (1)service at all between 242nd Street and 137th St-CCNY. Details below from MTA website.



MTA website announcement

From 11:30 P.M. Friday, July 10 to 5 a.m. Monday, July 13, there are no 1 trains between Van Cortlandt Park-242nd Street and 137th Street-City College due to station painting and flood mitigation work at 157th Street and the installation of communications equipment between 145th and 181st Streets. Expanded (A) and (C) trains, expanded NYCT Bus routes M3, M100, BX7 and free shuttle buses provide alternate service.

(1) Customers at closed stations are advised to add at least 30 extra minutes to their travel time.


Alternative options

1)The best route to Washington Heights and the Bronx is to transfer between the 1 and A at 59th Street. Then transfer between the A and the shuttle bus at 168th Street or 207th Street.


2)Alternative. To avoid expected crowds on the (1) shuttle buses and BX 7 and M100 this idea. For riders at (1) Bronx stations between 242nd Street and 225th, going to midtown take a crosstown Bronx bus such as the BX1, BX10(231St) or the BX9( all stations between 242-225th)and transfer to the (D) at Bedford Park(BX1 or BX10) or Kingsbridge Road. (D) stops at nearby 'express' (1) stops between 125th Street and West 4th or transfer to the (1) at 59th Street-Columbus Circle.


3)For (1)Upper Manhattan stations between 215th Street and 168th Street transfer between the Shuttle Buses and or BX7 and M100 and (A) train at 168th Street.


4)For (1) stations between 137th and 168th Street use the nearby (A)(C) and (D) stops along Central Park West/St Nicholas Avenue. Or transfer between the shuttle buses and M4 and M5 and (1) at 137th St-CCNY.
