Might as well start renaming this thread " (L) and Other Unplanned Subway Service Changes"

They'll really be holding that (L).

I'll see myself out...

I'd rather they restrict access much more over the alternative, which is someone falling onto the tracks because of a severe overcrowding situation.

Wow! An in-service (B) train passed by West 8 Street with passengers! That’s a first for me. What a customer-friendly move… has hell frozen over already?

Service Change

(Q) trains have service changes and delays because a train's brakes were activated at 72 St.

There is no (Q) service in either direction between 57 St/7 Av and 96 St.

For service to stations between 57 St/7 Av and 96 St, consider using M31 bus service; See a station agent to receive a courtesy pass for continuing service.

Expect delays in both directions on the (Q) line south of 57 St/7 Av.

Even though it doesn't say, I'm pretty sure that (M) trains aren't running to 96th Street either.

UPDATE:

Service Change  Posted: 04/28/2019  6:30PM 

 

(M) and (Q) trains have service changes and delays while we investigate reports of an unauthorized person on the tracks at 72 St.

 

There are no (M) or (Q) trains in either direction between 57 St/7 Av and 96 St.

 

Some 96 St-bound (M) trains are being rerouted to Forest Hills-71 Av or will turn for Metropolitan Av-bound service at Essex St.

 

For service to stations between 57 St/7 Av and 96 St, consider using an M31 bus; See a station agent to receive a courtesy pass for transfers.

 

Expect delays in both directions on the (M) and (Q) lines south of 57 St/7 Av.

--------------------------------------------------------

Second day in a row that the (M) was affected by something preventing full service to run to/from Midtown. Also, they should have considered running trains up to/from 145 Street via CPW Express in order to maintain service to Midtown.

Looks like it's fixed

Delays

(M) and (Q) trains have resumed regular service in Manhattan in both directions after we safely removed an unauthorized person on the tracks at 72 St.

Continue to expect significant delays as we get trains back on/close to schedule.

Having the (M) run to 145 if 96th/2nd is unavailable would make sense and the (MTA) should have a contingency plan for that OR have the (M) go to 168 with the (C) and terminate there in that scenario.

First time I have ever seen my old bus route (M31) ever said for alternative service.  Used to use that in the days before it was extended to the west side (used to terminate at 59th/Lex).

Service Change

There is no (D) train service north of Tremont Av in either direction while we work to correct a switch problem at that station.

If you're traveling north, consider transferring to the (4) train at 161 St-Yankee Stadium. See a station agent to receive a courtesy pass for continuing train or bus service.

Expect delays on (A) , (B) , (C) and (D) trains.

Station-Specific Alternatives:

Norwood-205 St: Take the Bx28 bus to Moshulu Pkwy (4) .

Bedford Pk Blvd: Take the Bx26 bus to Bedford Pk Blvd-Lehman College (4).

Fordham Rd: Take the Bx12-SBS or local to Fordham Rd (4).

Find your nearest bus stop and real-time arrival information at mta.info for bus time or use the MyMTA App.

With the (M), given the (L) situation on weekends  having an alternate terminal if 96th/2nd is unavailable is necessary so the (M) can. run up 6th Avenue, which IS the priority.

The (M) could go to Queens Plaza, double end the train with T/Os at QP so it's not on the lay up track for more than a couple of mins and they don't have to fumigate.

There are extensive delays and service changes in (E) and (F) train service because a person was struck by a train at Elmhurst Av.

There is no southbound (E) and (F) train service past Forest Hills-71 Av into Manhattan.

There is reduced northbound (E) and (F) train service.

As an alternative, customers can take the Q32 and Q60 buses.
