The holidays are kind to weekend subway service

By · Published in 2007

So get this: There is a grand total of three service advisories this weekend plus the ever-popular “the Cortlandt Street Station is closed until the end of days” advisory. That’s what happens when tourists are in town. The MTA can’t confuse people who just stand there gaping.

So all you Upper West Siders wishing for express service (cough cough my parents cough cough), it’s your lucky weekend. Service advisories are here in press release form and below.


From 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., Saturday, December 8 and Sunday, December 9, Bronx-bound 4 trains run express from 149th Street to Burnside Avenue due to cable work north of 149th Street station.


From 11 p.m. Friday, December 7 to 5 a.m. Monday, December 10, free shuttle buses replace A trains between Beach 90th Street and Far Rockaway due to track panel work between Beach 90th Street and Mott Avenue-Far Rockaway stations.


From 12:01 a.m., Saturday, December 8 to 5 a.m. Monday, December 10, Manhattan-bound D trains run express from Bay parkway to 9th Avenue due to switch renewal north of 9th Avenue.


The Cortlandt Street Station is closed until further notice while the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey continues to build on the WTC site.
