Despite continued work in the Rockaways, E and F train riders share the pity prize for most debilitating service changes this weekend. The E will be masquerading as both the F and R, in parts, and skipping a huge portion of its usual stops, including express stations, while the F will be masquerading as the E (naturally) as well as the A, in parts. This weekend’s work also holds particularly unpleasant change-ups for N and R straphangers.

1 trains run approximately every 16 minutes between 137 Street and 242 Street – transfer at 137 Street for trains headed toward Van Cortlandt Park.

No 2 trains between 135 St and E 180 St – free shuttle buses provide alternate service. Weekdays through August 31, 2 and 5 trains run at reduced speed in the area of 149 St-Grand Concourse due to “track maintenance”.

Jamaica-bound F trains skip 75 Av, Briarwood and Sutphin Blvd. Queens-bound F and G trains skip Fort Hamilton Pkwy, 15 St-Prospect Park and 4 Av-9 St.
