Subway usage is way down because of COVID-19, and there are no planned service changes this weekend that seriously affect availability of service at local stations. 2 trains will be running every 12 minutes because of track work in the Bronx. There will be no late night R service, which only runs between 95th Street in Bay Ridge and Whitehall Street, the first stop in Manhattan, but N trains, which run on the R line between DeKalb Avenue and Canal Street late at night should be running normally, so there should be late night service in both directions at Court Street and at Jay Street-MetroTech.
The following work week – Monday, March 23 to Friday, March 27 – each night Monday through Thursday from about 9:30 p.m. to about 11:45 p.m. there will be no 3 train service in either direction at Clark Street or Borough Hall. Use 2 or 4 trains instead; for those traveling to or from stations in Brooklyn, 2 trains will make all 3 stops between Borough Hall and Franklin Avenue, and 4 trains will make all 3 train stops between Atlantic Avenue-Barclays Center and New Lots Avenue. Each night Tuesday through Friday from about midnight to 5:00 a.m. there will be extra Manhattan bound service at Court Street and Jay Street-MetroTech as Manhattan bound Q trains will be diverted to the R line between DeKalb Avenue and Canal Street.
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.
