The 2 and 3 are finally running between Brooklyn and Manhattan on weekends again, but now two stations are closing (as two others reopen) in Astoria, and the 1 train has a slew of disruptive service changes planned at least for this weekend. Everything pales with the hell set for Rockaway residents this summer, as the A and Rockaway Park Shuttle won’t be connecting the beach to the mainland again until September.

Here’s the full list of trouble:

Uptown 1 trains skip Franklin, Canal, Houston and Christopher St. No 1 trains between 137 Street and 242 Street – free shuttle buses provide alternate service. South Ferry-bound 1 trains skip 86, 79, 66, 59 and 50 Sts.

Wakefield-bound 2 trains skip Franklin, Canal, Houston and Christopher Sts in Manhattan and Park East, Pelham Pkwy, Allerton Av and Burke Av in the Bronx. Flatbush Av-bound 2 trains skip 86, 79, 66, 59 and 50 St.

3 trains replace the 4 in Brooklyn.

5 trains run every 20 minutes between E 180 St and Grand Central-42 St. No 5 trains between Grand Central-42 St and Bowling Green. No 5 trains between E 180 St and Dyre Av – free shuttle buses provide alternate service.

Pelham Bay Park-bound 6 trains run express from 3 Av-138 St to Parkchester, stopping at Hunts Point.

Beginning at 11:45 p.m. on Sunday and continuing until September 3, there will be no A service between Broad Channel and Far Rockaway-Mott Av, nor Rockaway Park Shuttle service at Broad Channel. The Shuttle will also only be running approximately every 15 minutes between Rockaway Park-Beach 116 St and Beach 90 St, and via the A to/from Far Rockaway-Mott Av. Inwood-bound A trains skip 81, 96, 103 an 116 Sts.

168 St-bound C trains skip 81, 96, 103 and 116 Sts. Euclid Av-bound C trains skip 50, 23 and Spring St.

World Trade Center-bound E trains run express from 71 Av to Queens Plaza, stopping at Roosevelt Av.

L trains run approximately every 24 minutes between Broadway Junction and Rockaway Pkwy.

Norwood-bound D trains skip 182-183 Sts.

Coney Island-bound F trains run via the E from Roosevelt Av to Canal St and via the A to Jay St-MetroTech (no Coney Island-bound F service at 21 St-Queensbridge, Roosevelt Island, Lexington Av/63 St, 57, 47-50 Sts, 42 St-Bryant Pk, 34 St-Herald Sq, 23, 14, B’way-Lafayette Sts, 2 Av, Delancey St, East Broadway and York St) stopping at W 4 St.

M trains operate between Middle Village-Metropolitan Av and Delancey St/Essex St.

Coney Island-bound N trains skip 49 St and run express from Atlantic Av-Barclays Ctr to 59 St. Beginning 5am July 2 until February 2019, the Broadway and 39 Av stations on the N and W will close.

No N trains between Ditmars Blvd and Queensboro Plaza – free shuttle buses provide alternate service.

Coney-Island bound Q trains skip 49 St.

Bay Ridge-bound R trains run express from Atlantic Av-Barclays Ctr to 59 St in Brooklyn. Bay Ridge-bound R trains skip 49 St and run express from 71 Av to Queens Plaza.

No J trains between Crescent St and Jamaica Center – buses make all J stops between Crescent and 121 St.

No G trains between Bedford-Nostrand Avs and Court Sq – buses provide alternate service.

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