While the usual slew of service changes will be impacting straphangers this weekend, there are some silver linings. The D, F, N and R have abandoned their masquerade as one another and once again assumed their usual identities and track routes. Unfortunately, this weekend the M is totally offline, with free shuttle buses and the J train picking up some of the slack. Read on for the rest:
No 1 trains between 137 Street and 242 Street – free shuttle buses provide alternate service.
2 trains replace weekend 5 service between Dyre Avenue and E 180 Street. No 2 or 3 train service between Manhattan and Brooklyn – no service at Park Place, Wall Street, Clark Street and Hoyt Street.
