Almost two decades later, the WTC Cortlandt 1 station has reopened, and boy does it look spiffy. Maybe not two decades worth of no service spiffy, but certainly it’s in better shape than most other subway stations. Meanwhile, weekend G service is once again modified, all M trains are running with (at least) a 20-minute delay between trains, and D, F, and A trains are masquerading as one another.
Now, for the full roster of bad news:
No 1 service between Rector Street and South Ferry – free shuttle buses provide alternate service. Van Cortlandt Park-bound 1 trains skip 207, 215, 225, 231 and 238 streets.
