Planned Subway Service Changes

Recommended Posts

F.png Coney Island-bound trains skip Avenue U and Avenue X [/color]

 

Weekend, 6 AM to 6 PM, Sat and Sun, Jan 12 - 13

 

 

 

What work is causing this G/O?

 

 

 

 

 

On a side note, this means we get views of F trains taking the slip switch from the express to the local track at Avenue X in addition to running express via Culver Viaduct and Bergen Lower during a separate G/O.

 

 

 

I would assume work being done on either Avenue U or X on the CI platform/side.

I doubt...

 

Southbound (1) service is still normal, why not the (2)...The southbound crossing from local to express is now at 14th instead of Chambers for god who knows, doubling waiting time from 15 to 20 minutes for southbound local customers from 14th to Chambers...

 

I just wonder why this.....

I wonder if they're working on the crossover between the downtown tracks north of Chambers. Besides any ridership changes, seems to be a logical answer.

 

On a similar note:

 

 

(2) Wakefield-bound trains skip 79 St and 86 St

Late Nights, 12:15 AM to 5 AM, Tue to Fri, until Mar 22

 

Take the (1) instead.

 

• Transfer between (1) and (2) trains at 72 St or 96 St.

_________________________

 

Only the (2) is affected, wonder why.

No Flatbush Av-bound service at Park Place, Wall St, Clark St and Hoyt St. 

Flatbush Av-bound 2.png and New Lots Av-bound 4.png trains skip Bergen St, Grand Army Plaza

then make stops at Rector St and Bowling Green. 
Bronx-bound 5.png trains run from Bowling Green to Dyre Av overnight.

Gone ahead in time a bit, this service change stood out more than the rest!

 

(2) No trains between 3 Av-149 St and 135th St


shuttle_bus.png Free shuttle buses provide alternate service 
Weekend, 11:30 PM Fri to 5 AM Mon, Mar 22 - 25 

Service operates in two sections: 
  1. Between 241 St and 3 Av-149 St 
  2. Between the 148 St 3.png Station and Flatbush Av 
      
(Trains skip 145 St 3.png in both directions) 

Shuttle buses operate along three routes: 
  1. Between 3 Av-149 St and 135 St 
  2. Between 3 Av-149 St and 149 St-Grand Concourse 
  3. Between 149 St-Grand Concourse and 135 St 

 

Transfer between trains and buses at 3 Av-149 St and 135th St.

 

Only logical reason I can think of for this is work in the 149th St Tunnel,  (2) obviously skips 145 St due to the short platforms there

I think it's more work for Mott Avenue than just tunnel work.

Wow, the modernization of the signal system at Roosevelt Av, 71 Av and Union Tpke (the remaining old towers on the line). Is this a replacement with a master tower? I've always wondered about over there. I think I may have hard of such a project, but no one was sure where it would be.

Gone ahead in time again...

 

(F) Service operates in 2 sections:


1. Between 179 St and Jay St-MetroTech, and via the A.png to/from Hoyt-Schermerhorn 
2. Between Stillwell Av and Bergen St, and via the G.png to/from Bedford-Nostrand Avs 

Late Nights, 11:45 PM to 5 AM, Mon to Thu, Mar 25 - 28 

• Transfer at Hoyt-Schermerhorn to continue your trip.
 
 
Looking at maps, the way the Hoyt-Schermerhorn turn around may work (I think) seems to be to run the train up to Clinton-Washington Aves on the express  (A) track (seeing as that line is local through there at late-night), change ends, run it through a siding between the express tracks between Clinton-Washington Aves and Lafayette Ave and then rejoin the Manhattan-bound (A) express line into Hoyt-Schermerhorn, seems most logical, unless the MTA have other ideas, which given them they might!

Yes, that how it works. And the (G) will also use the (F) 's equipment, so enjoy your 600 ft R160's on the Crosstown!

The (7) outage between QBP and Times Sq has plenty of alternates. This one doesn't look to be fun.

I wonder what sort of work is going to be done that makes it so that uptown trains can't pass Fulton Street, and downtown trains can't stop there...

 

 

 

 

(A)(C) No service at Fulton St
No transfers between (2)  (3) and (4)  (5) trains at Fulton St 

Weekend, 11:45 PM Fri to 5 AM Mon, Jun 14 - 17 

Brooklyn-bound  (A)  (C) trains skip Fulton St. 

Inwood-bound A.png and 168 St-bound C.png trains run via the F.png from Jay-St MetroTech to W 4 St. 

Travel Alternatives 

For service to Brooklyn, use the nearby Chambers St A.png C.png Station instead. 

For uptown A.png C.png service, take the local 4.png or 5.png* to Bleecker St and transfer 
to the A.png C.png at the F.png platform. 

• Transfer between 2.png 3.png and Brooklyn-bound A.png C.png trains at Chambers St/Park Place. 
• Transfer between 2.png 3.png and uptown A.png C.png trains at Times Sq-42 St/Port Authority.

Ugh, they did that a while back too, and with the (4)(5). Hate it when they do that.
