Weekend service changes impact Yankee travel

By · Published in 2010

As you browse the site this weekend, make sure to check out my tour inside the Second Ave. Subway launch box. There’s a corresponding photo set and a brief video as well.

The service advisories follow. These come to me via New York City Transit and are subject to change without notice. Listen to on-board announcements and check signs in your local station. Check Subway Weekender for the map, and don’t fret over the news that the MTA may consider shuttering larger segments of routes to make better use of weekend service changes. That future seems unlikely.

Just a note for those of you who, like me, are heading up to Yankee Stadium this weekend. Both the 4 and D trains have service changes that will impact how long it takes to get to the Bronx. The two trains are running local for parts of their routes in Manhattan, and there is no 4 service between Brooklyn and Manhattan. Plan accordingly.

    Why does construction at Fulton cause the 4 to have to run local in Manhattan?

    For those interested in a fun (and FREE) way to get to Yankee Stadium/Citi Field, check out the Water Taxi from Wall Street:

    Just beware, they only take you to the stadium…not back.

    It’s even worse than you say it is. The E didn’t stop at Lex, which meant that my connection to JFK was lost.
