The bomb cyclone may have officially passed, but the MTA is still struggling to get back on track following the relative havoc the storm wreaked on the frail subway signal system. Friday’s overcrowded and delayed morning commute is unfortunately set to be followed by a weekend’s worth of service changes, but hey, at least the LaGuardia Link is free again.

South Ferry-bound 1 trains will skip 137, 125, 116, 110 and 103 Sts Friday night through Monday morning. Van Cortland Park-bound 1 trains will skip 207, 215, 225, 231 and 238 Sts.

There will be no 5 trains between 241 St and Grand Central-42 St from late Friday night to Monday morning. 2 and 4 trains will provide alternate service. The 5 will operate between Grand Central-42 St and Flatbush Av.

2 and 3 trains will be running local in large swaths of the Bronx, Brooklyn, and parts of Manhattan. There will be no 2 or 3 train service between Manhattan and Brooklyn. In Manhattan and the Bronx, 2 service will operate between 241 St and South Ferry.

4 train service will operate in two sections – between Woodlawn and 125 St and between 125 St and New Lots Av, with Woodlawn-bound trains from Manhattan skipping 138 St-Grand Concourse.

Flushing-bound 7 trains will skip 33, 40, 52, 69, 74, 82, 90, 103 and 111 Sts. As well, Vernon Blvd-Jackson Av and Hunters Point Av trains will board at the Manhattan-bound platform, and Hunters Point Av and Vernon Blvd-Jackson Av trains will board at the Flushing-bound platform.

A trains will be running local in both directions between Broadway Junction and Hoyt Schermerhorn.

Much of the E line will be running local.

B service will end even earlier than usual this weekend: 9pm on Friday.

D service is rerouted in Manhattan and Brooklyn, with no D trains at 7 Av, 47-50 Its, 42 St-Bryant Pk, 34 St-Herald Sq, B’way-Lafayette St and Grand St. D service will operate between 205 St and 59 St-Columbus Circle, and via the A express to/from Jay St-MetroTech, and via the F to/from Stillwell Av. F, N, Q, and R trains as well as free shuttle buses between W 4 St and Grand St, stopping at B’way-Lafayette St, provide alternate service.

F trains are rerouted via the Q express in Manhattan and replace the D in Brooklyn between Atlantic Av-Barclays Ctr and Stillwell Av. Coney Island-bound trains skip Union St, 4 Av-9 St, Prospect Av, and 25 St D stations.

There will be no M train service at Broadway Junction, Halsey St, Gates Av, Kosciuszko St, Myrtle Av, Flushing Av, Lorimer St, Hewes St, Marcy Av and between Essex St and Broadway Junction – J trains provide alternate service. M shuttle trains operate at all times between Metropolitan Av and Myrtle-Wyckoff Avs.

Coney Island-bound N trains run express from Atlantic Av-Barclays Ctr to 59 St in Brooklyn and make local stops at Union St, 4 Av-9 St, Prospect Av, 25, 45 and 53 St. Astoria-bound trains will make local stops at 53, 45, 36, 25 Sts, Prospect Av, 4 Av-9 St and Union St. Between Atlantic Av-Barclays Ctr and Canal St, N trains run via the R line in both directions

Bay Ridge-bound R trains will run express from Atlantic Av-Barclays Ctr to 59 St, stopping at 36 St.

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