The MTA has finally announced when normal weekend service will resume along the 2 and 3 lines, which have not been running between Brooklyn and Manhattan on Saturdays and Sundays for months: Sunday, June 24 at 12:01 a.m. Until then, though, it’s tough luck if you need to get to the Park Place, Wall Street, Clark Street, and/or Hoyt Street stops on the weekend.
In other news, the MTA has begun inexplicably including borough names in service change descriptions to offer unnecessary specificity even when the station, such as Howard Beach-JFK, only exists in one borough and is well-known.
South Ferry-bound 1 trains skip 125, 116, 110 and 103 Streets.
No 2 or 3 train service between Brooklyn or Manhattan. 2 trains replace 5 service between Dyre Av and E 180 Street. No 2 trains between Dyre Av and E 180 St in the Bronx – free shuttle buses provide alternate service, making all stops between E 180 St and Dyre Av.
Due to the Brooklyn Half Marathon, there will be no 4 or 5 train service at the Eastern Parkway stop in both directions. Manhattan-bound 4 trains run express from Burnside Av to 149 St-Grand Concourse in the Bronx. No 4 trains between Utica Av and New Lots Av – free shuttle buses provide alternate service, making all stops between Utica Av and New Lots Av.
5 trains replace weekend 2 service between Wakefield-241 St and E 180 St.
No A trains between Howard Beach-JFK and Mott Av – free shuttle buses provide alternate service. Uptown A trains skip 81, 86, 96, 103 and 116 Sts. No A trains between 168 St and 207 St – free shuttle buses provide alternate service.
Uptown C trains skip 81, 86 96, 103 and 116 Sts. No C trains at 135 St or between 145 St and 168 St – A trains provide alternate service.
No shuttle train between Broad Channel and Beach 90 St – Far Rockaway Bus operates between Howard Beach and Mott Av nonstop.
World Trade Center-bound E trains skip 67 Av, 63 Dr, Woodhaven Blvd, Grand Av, Elmhurst Av, Briarwood and 75 Av.
D service is rerouted between 59 St-Columbus Circle and Stillwell Av via the A and replace F service in Brooklyn between Jay St and Stillwell Av. – free shuttle buses provide some alternate service.
Manhattan-bound F trains skip Sutphin Blvd, Briarwood and 75 Av. F service is rerouted in Brooklyn and Manhattan, with no service between York St and 57 St. The F will be operating between Jamaica-179 St and Lexington Av-63 St and via the Q express to and from Atlantic Av-Barclays Ctr, skipping DeKalb Av. To and from Stillwell Av, the F will be operating via the D.
M service operates between Middle Village-Metropolitan Av and Delancey St and Myrtle Av late nights.
N trains run via the R in both directions between Atlantic A-Barclays Ctr and Canal St. No N trains in Queens between Ditmars Blvd and Queensboro Plaza – free shuttle buses provide alternate service.
R service operates to/from the 179 St F station. Bay Ridge-bound R trains skip the Sutphin Blvd, Briarwood and 75 Av F stations and 67 Av, 63 Dr, Woodhaven Blvd, Grand Av and Elmhurst Av.
Per the whims of the MTA, there will probably be other problems, and the problems stated above are subject to change and worsen.
