The holidays are over, and the subways are crowded again. Just like last weekend, this coming weekend, from Friday, January 10 at about 9:30 PM to Monday morning, January 13 at about 5:00 AM, there will be no 4 or 5 train service in either direction between Brooklyn and Manhattan, as 4 trains will terminate and originate at Brooklyn Bridge in Manhattan, and 5 trains do not serve Brooklyn during weekends. As 2 and 3 trains should be running normally, use them as an option, and, for those traveling to or from places in Brooklyn, 3 trains will make all 4 stops between 138th Street and New Lots Avenue. If traveling to or from Manhattan’s East Side, you can transfer to or from a 4 or 5 to a 2 or 3 (or an A or C) at Fulton Street.
Also this weekend, from about 11:45 Friday evening to about 5:00 Monday there will be no service from York Street in DUMBO to Manhattan, as F trains will be diverted to the A/C line between Jay Street-MetroTech and West 4th Street. To get to the LES stations on the F, take a Brooklyn bound F to Jay, and change there for a Manhattan bound F.
The following work week – Monday, January 13 to Friday, January 17 – there are no planned service changes directly affecting service at any local stations. Each night, Monday to Tuesday, Tuesday to Wednesday, and Wednesday to Thursday, there will be extra service in both directions at Court Street and at Jay Street-MetroTech, as N trains will be diverted to the R line between Atlantic Avenue-Barclays Center and 57th Street-7th Avenue.
These are the PLANNED service changes for the coming weekend and following work week that directly affect service at local stations. If you’re planning to take a train not affected by these planned changes, we urge you to first check MTA Info to see if there are any unplanned service disruptions. Also, always check MTA Info for planned or unplanned changes that may affect your trip on other parts of the system.
