Just a few weekend service changes

By · Published in 2009

December really is the best month for subway travel. With tourists descending upon New York, the MTA has scaled back subway work so that just a few lines are impacted this weekend. This is what life would be like without a grand plan to maintain a state of good repair. I think I’ll take a modern subway and some weekend changes rather than a crumbling system and regular weekend service.

Anyway, that’s about it from me for today. We spent a lot of time this week talking about the immediate financial future of the MTA, and I’ll probably toss up a post or two this weekend as well. Don’t forget about the Nostalgia Train this weekend. It runs on the V line on Sundays.

For the rest of the weekend changes, you know the drill. Don’t forget to check out our map from Subway Weekender that shows just how the subway changes impact travel. Download this week’s version right here or by clicking on the image below. Remember: These weekend service changes come to me from the MTA and are subject to change without notice. Check signs in your local station and listen for on-board announcements for up-to-the minute changes. The specific alerts follow.
