The only planned service change negatively affecting service at local stations this weekend is that, just like last weekend and the weekend before, from Friday, January 17 at about 9:30 PM to Monday morning, January 20 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.
The following work week, Tuesday, January 21 to Friday, January 24 (Monday, January 20 is the Martin Luther King Day holiday), each night Tuesday to Wednesday, Wednesday to Thursday, and Thursday to Friday, N trains will provide service in both directions at Court Street and Jay Street-MetroTech, as they will be diverted to the R line.
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.
