No matter how you’re celebrating this Father’s Day weekend, the MTA is probably the most likely candidate to throw a last-minute wrench in your plan to be punctual. The planned service changes are fairly merciful, but far from insignificant. Uptown 1, 4, and 6 trains are skipping a bunch of stops uptown, while the D and F take a break for stretches of Brooklyn.
This weekend and next, 1 service between 96 Street and 242 Street will be replaced by A and C trains, in addition to M3, M100, and free shuttle buses.
2 trains won’t be running between Franklin Avenue and Flatbush Avenue in Brooklyn, hop on a free shuttle bus instead. Uptown 2 and 3 trains will make stops at Franklin, Canal, Houston, Christopher, 18, 23, and 28 Streets in Manhattan throughout the weekend. 2 trains will be running every 12 minutes throughout the weekend, with slightly longer delays expected on Sunday morning.
4 trains will run local in both directions between 14 Street-Union Square and Brooklyn Bridge. On nights this weekend, uptown 4 trains will skip 51, 68, 77, 96, 103, 110 and 116 Streets in Manhattan.
Eastchester-bound 5 trains will skip Morris Park, Pelham Pkwy, Gun Hill Road and Baychester Avenue in the Bronx. For most of the weekend, 5 trains will run local in both directions between 14 Street-Union Square and Brooklyn Bridge, and approximately every 20 minutes. There won’t be any 5 service between East 180 Street and Bowling Green on Sunday between 7:45 a.m. and 10 a.m.
Uptown 6 trains will be skipping 51, 68, 77, 96, 103, 110 and 116 Streets in Manhattan.
Inwood-bound A and 168 Street-bound C trains run express from Euclid Avenue to Hoyt Schermerhorn in Brooklyn.
E trains will run local in both directions between Queens Plaza and 71 Avenue in Queens, this weekend and next.
L trains run every 20 minutes between Rockaway Pkwy in Brooklyn and 8 Avenue in Manhattan and all L trains at 1 Avenue and 3 Avenue in Manhattan board from the Brooklyn-bound platform…but you already knew that!
Norwood-bound D trains skip 20 Avenue, 18 Avenue, 79, 71, 55, 50 Streets, and Fort Hamilton Pkwy in Brooklyn and 170, 174-175, and 182-183 Streets in the Bronx.
F trains run local in both directions between 21 Street-Queensbridge and 71 Avenue in Queens. From 6:45 a.m. on Saturday to 7 p.m. on Sunday, Jamaica-bound F trains will run express from Avenue X to Smith-9 Streets in Brooklyn.
M service is extended to the 96 Street Q station in Manhattan.
N service between Ditmars Blvd and Queensboro Plaza in Queens will be replaced by free shuttle buses from 3:45 a.m. on Saturday to 10 p.m. on Sunday. Coney Island-bound N platforms at Fort Hamilton Pkwy, New Utrecht, 18, and 20 Avenues are temporarily closed. The Astoria Blvd N, W station is temporarily closed.
96 Street-bound Q trains run express from Kings Hwy to Prospect Park in Brooklyn.
This weekend, R service will run to/from the Jamaica-179 Street F station in Queens.
As of this Tuesday, J service is restored at 111 Street.
Per the whims of the MTA, there will probably be other problems, and the problems stated above are subject to change and worsen.
