It’s the return of the Weekend Service Advisories

By · Published in 2008

Despite the tourists, despite the crowds, despite all the bad parts of living through the holiday season in New York, one of the many good aspects is the subway service. For six blissful weeks in between Thanksgiving and New Year’s, the MTA ramps down their weekend track work.

They can’t, after all, have confused tourists on their hands trying to figure out why the D is running in two sections and up the 8th Ave. line in Manhattan. And forget about asking the station workers about service changes; they probably won’t know what’s going on anymore than the rest of us do.

But now that the holidays are over, the work returns. For the month of December, West Siders were blissfully aware of the return of express service on the IRT. This weekend? Fughedaboutit. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg. The 7 is running express in sections; the F is running on the V; and the D is indeed running in two sections and down 8th Ave.

The weekend service advisory press release is here. The alerts are below.
