They could have easily just stated "Special (M) service runs between Metropolitan Av and Rockefeller Ctr, then via the (B) to/from 145 St."

Looks like a pedantic explanation. The MTA might perhaps be not mentioning the (B) because the (B) doesn’t run on weekends. It’s like an alternate universe during the weekend when the (B) doesn’t exist.

Except the (B) doesn't run on weekends.  Some weekend travelers don't use the system during the week.

They couldn't send it to 9th Avenue or Bay 50th St?

It's absolutely true... I've used 4th Avenue every morning and when both the (D) and (N) arrive in the station at the same time, it's common for both trains to sit for a while before one of them gets the line up.

Wait, arent the express tracks between 36th St and Atlantic suppose to be shutdown next?

Yea, I forgot the part where they put "Service runs on a modified schedule because work trains and (D)(N) and (R) trains are sharing tracks between 36 St and Atlantic Av, and (D)(N) and (Q) trains are sharing tracks between DeKalb Av and Stillwell Av"

There is no reason for any of that . They already run 4 lines on Dekalb track from 7PM. In terms of a full time  Express track shutdown between 36 and Atlantic. That would be a problem. The only real way they can do that is build a switch from Atlantic 4th ave local to the bypass. Or perhaps send all Broadway trains  Except maybe the (Q)  via Montague and make (W) service every 15-20 min,

The weekend change probably has to do with 96th Street.

(MTA) translation: We're too cheap to completely shut down the line past Parkchester to provide shuttle buses, and we know we can get away with this because Bronx people are too poor to know what's better.
