This week was a big one for the MTA, with NYC Transit President Andy Byford releasing the Fast Forward plan, with 10 years worth of road map for necessary modernizations to be made to the subway system, as well as an announcement that subway service will possibly be increased during off-peak, weekday hours beginning in November along the A, D, E and F lines. Much more immediately, many of this weekend’s subway service changes will extend into Monday and early Tuesday due to Memorial Day and the long weekend.
Thanks to Memorial Day the MTA will be continuing much of its weekend track work into the Monday holiday.
