This week’s slate of planned subway service changes rivals the weekend’s—and maybe even exceeds it. Service on parts of the B and D will continue to end early, 5 service between E 180 Street and Bowling Green will end at 8:30 p.m. from Monday to Thursday, and the L is only running every 24 minutes during the day. The A and C are the only lines without scheduled work, but unplanned signal issues are likely to shake things up there as well.

Uptown 1 trains will run express from Chambers Street to 34 Street-Penn Station in Manhattan, from 9:45 p.m. to 5 a.m. Monday to Friday.
