After a rough week, a rougher weekend

By

Between the announcement concerning more upcoming cuts and the injunction blocking the station agent dismissals, the MTA didn’t have a very good work. They are committed to working with developers on mobile applications, but that’s a small consolation for a city that will see drastic reductions in the quality of its transit system.

With Friday upon us, it’s time again for the weekend service changes. As always, this come to me from New York City Transit and are subject to change with no notice. Listen to on-board announcements and check signs at your local station. For a visual representation of these service advisories, check out the map at Subway Weekender.
