A Christmas gift from the MTA! For once, there’s some good news in the weekend service change announcement: the Q70 LaGuardia Link Bus, which stops at all main LaGuardia Airport terminals and relatively nearby subway stations, will be fare-free today and Saturday and there will be “lots of extra LIRR & Metro-North Service,” as well as extra SIR trains Savor that information and read on to the less positive, but comparatively chipper, weekend service developments:

The entire subway will be running on a Sunday schedule on Christmas Eve and Day, meaning there will be:

  • No B or W train service
  • No 2 or 3 train service in Brooklyn
  • No J/Z skip-stop service
  • No 5 or D express service in the Bronx
  • No 6 or 7 express service systemwide
  • M service will run between Delancey-Essex Its and Broadway Junction on the A/C/J/L, and between Myrtle-Wyckoff Avs and Metropolitan Av
  • 4 trains will run between Woodlawn and New Lots Av.
  • 5 trains will run between Flatbush Av and the Bronx

Then, from Tuesday, December 26 through Friday, December 29, E trains will run on the F line between W 4 St and Jackson Hts-Roosevelt Av in both directions and M service will be suspended.

Per the whims of the MTA, there will probably be other problems, and the problems stated above are subject to change and worsen.

    If that’s the good news, I shudder to think what the bad news is…
