It wouldn’t be the weekend without a more-than-fair share of MTA service changes, and that time of the week is upon us once again. Per usual, a number of trains will be skipping stops, running via wonky routes and with delays. See the full damage below.

Here’s what else is in store

Overall, the subway service changes this weekend are more merciful than in past weeks but, as always, there are still some things to watch out for. Uptown F trains are running via the A and E, the 6 is running in two sections so you’ll have to transfer at 125th Street, and there won’t be any J or M service between Brooklyn and Manhattan. Check out more details below.

While there are no planned changes for the 3, 4, 6, and L trains this weekend, most other lines are not so lucky. The M isn’t running between Queens and Manhattan, the J continues to take a break between Brooklyn and Queens, and there will be a significant amount of skipped stops across the board. Check out the full damage below.

Planned work will be impacting just about everyone this weekend, with only the M lucky enough to avoid significant disruptions. The J isn’t running between Crescent Street and Jamaica Center and 7 train service will be severely limited. Most lines will be skipping multiple stops and running with delays—see the full damage below.

We’re looking forward to another weekend of convoluted service changes impacting nearly every line. The 6 (lucky you!) is the only line with no planned changes, but the 7 is also looking good. Service changes will continue to spill into late night and early morning hours over the week. Take note: The A needs some last minute “urgent track repairs” and will not run between Jay Street-MetroTech and Utica Avenue on Monday and Tuesday. Read on for the full details.

A majority of train lines will have to deal with service changes this weekend, with lots of skips, delays, and convoluted routes, especially on the E. To top it all off, the MTA just announced there will be no 7 service on Saturday between Queensboro Plaza and 34 Street-Hudson Yards from 6 a.m. to 3 p.m., due to urgent track repair needs.

Many New Yorkers are looking forward to a long weekend, but it won’t be without its fair share of service changes. On Monday, MTA services will operate on special schedules, with Metro-North and the LIRR offering off-peak fares throughout the day. The worse news is that subways and buses will be on a Saturday schedule, meaning that many of the planned service interruptions listed below will extend into Monday, and in some cases, even Tuesday.

The 7 is back this weekend, but the L train is not

First, the good news: 7 service has been restored after several weeks, the J and M will be running between Brooklyn and Manhattan (but the J is out of service from Crescent Street to Jamaica Center), and there are no planned disruptions on the 2, 3, 6, and Q lines. The bad news impacts L train riders, who will have to get used to service changes through March. The L won’t be running from 8th Avenue in Manhattan to Brooklyn Junction. Read on for more details about the skipped stops and delays that may impact your travel this weekend.

Most of the planned work for this weekend looks a lot like last week’s slate: still no B train, no J or M between Brooklyn and Manhattan, no 7 between Queensboro Plaza and 34 Street-Hudson Yards, and longer than usual wait times on some lines. G, L, and Q riders can rejoice for now, you get to enjoy another weekend without planned subway service disruptions.
