Pope, service changes make for a rough Passover commute

By · Published in 2008

So apparently the Pope is snarling traffic everywhere, and it’s only going to get worse before it gets better this weekend. Stay away from the Upper East Side; stay away from the Yankee Stadium area. And if you’re heading to a Seder tomorrow or Sunday night, leave plenty of time for travel.

You all know the drill. Service alerts are here and below.


From 12:01 a.m. Saturday, April 19 to 5 a.m. Monday, April 21, Manhattan-bound 24 trains run express from Franklin Avenue to Atlantic Avenue due to hydraulics work at Atlantic Avenue. – This is bad news for people like me going from Grand Army Plaza to the Upper West Side for a Seder.


From 12:01 a.m. Saturday, April 19 to 5 a.m. Monday, April 21, uptown 2 trains replace the 5 from Nevins to 149th Street and uptown 5 trains replace the 2 from Chambers Street to 149th Street.
