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.

The usual roster of service changes is coming to a subway near you this weekend. There will be limited service uptown and in the Bronx on 1 and 2 trains, heavy delays continue on the 5, and for the majority of the weekend, Flushing-bound 7 trains will be skipping a bunch of stops in Queens. The worse news is that those changes won’t simply go away at 5 a.m. on Monday—the week ahead has its own list of service changes, and it’s a lot longer than usual. For now, check out the weekend’s damage below.

The weather forecast is looking good this weekend, but underground things aren’t as bright. The usual roster of subway service changes will hit the tracks, and while some straphangers are lucky enough to avoid planned work on their lines—the C, F, and G are in the clear—others are not so fortunate. The 1 isn’t running uptown, the 5 will only be running every 20 minutes, and there are scores of skipped stops and reduced service across the board.

This weekend, riders of the C and G trains will be better off than most, with no planned service changes on either line. The main source of frustration will be skipped stops across most other lines, with further reduced service after 11:45 p.m. on the 3, 5, 6, D, and N trains. Below, all the updates you need to make sure you don’t keep Mom waiting.

After years of planning and months of confusion, it’s finally here: the L train shutdown slowdown officially begins at 8 p.m. tonight. L trains will only be running every 20 minutes on weeknights and weekends for the next 12-15 months. During peak weekend hours, the L typically services 8,000 straphangers, but will only be able to accommodate 4,800 an hour under the reduced schedule—that leaves plenty of frustrated riders who will need to look for travel alternatives like the 7, G, and M trains, or the “Williamsburg Link” buses for stops in the Brooklyn neighborhood. Read on for all the service disruptions hitting the subways this weekend.

If you’re heading to the annual Easter Parade and Easter Bonnet Festival this Sunday—beginning at 10 a.m. at Fifth Avenue and 49th Street and marching up to 55th Street—you’ll want to take the E to Fifth Avenue-53rd Street, the N and R to Fifth Avenue-59th Street, the 4, 5, and 6 to Grand Central, or the 7 to Fifth Avenue. If you have other plans this weekend, check out our guide to planned service changes so you can get there with minimum headaches.

A bunch of service changes are hitting the subways again this week, with no line left untouched. In addition to multiple trains skipping stops or running express, several lines will be rerouted via other trains, and the 6 and L trains are both running in two sections, with delays to be expected. No matter what your plans are for the weekend, we’ve put together our weekly guide of planned subway service changes below, so you can head out prepared.

It wouldn’t be the weekend without a more-than-fair share of MTA service changes, and that time of the week is upon us once again. Per usual, a number of trains will be skipping stops, running via wonky routes and with delays. See the full damage below.

Here’s what else is in store

While there are no planned changes for the 3, 4, 6, and L trains this weekend, most other lines are not so lucky. The M isn’t running between Queens and Manhattan, the J continues to take a break between Brooklyn and Queens, and there will be a significant amount of skipped stops across the board. Check out the full damage below.
