Seasoned straphangers are certainly expectant of bad subway service news by this point, but that doesn’t make this weekend’s changeups any easier to navigate. The D and F are masquerading as each other across boroughs, 3 train riders are out of luck, and the Rockaways especially are hard hit by a lack of service on the only two lines which reach the area.
On the bright side, free bus service to LaGuardia Airport on the LaGuardia Link Q70 has been reinstated through April 7. Also in the realm of good news, eight extra trains will run out of Penn Station on the Long Island Rail Road for Good Friday and the start of Passover today. See the MTA’s press release for all of the additional afternoon departures. As well, MTA NYCTA President Andy Byford answered questions on Twitter yesterday and revealed his favorite Smiths song.
