Subway Service Alerts: Weekend and the Following Week

It’s pretty smooth going on the subways this weekend and the week after. The only change affecting service at local stations, both on the weekend (12:01 a.m. Saturday to 5:00 a.m. Monday) and during the wee hours (12:01 a.m. to 5:00 a.m.) Tuesday through Friday of the following week, is that A and C trains will be taking the F line from Jay Street-Metro Tech to West 4th Street. This means no Manhattan bound service during these times at High Street. For service to lower Manhattan below 4th Street during these times, those traveling from the North Heights are advised to take the 2 or 3 from Clark Street or the N or R from Court Street to nearby Manhattan stops.

Those returning from Manhattan during the weekend should know that Brooklyn bound R and N (which replaces the R between midnight and 5:00 a.m.) trains won’t be stopping at 28th, 23rd, 8th, or Prince streets. To get back from these stops, you can either take an uptown train to 14th (from Prince or 8th) or 34th (from 23rd or 28th) and get a Brooklyn bound train there, or take the 1 local from a nearby stop and change to a 2 or 3 at 14th or Chambers.

Those traveling into Brooklyn should know that, between 6:00 a.m. Saturday and 10:00 p.m. Sunday, there will be no 3 train service beyond Franklin Avenue, and between 4:00 a.m. Saturday and 9:00 a.m. Sunday, no 4 service between Utica Avenue and New Lots Avenue. Too get to Utica or stations between there and Franklin, change to a 4 at Franklin, which will make all local stops. To get to New Lots or stations between there and Utica, shuttle buses will be provided.
