    I’m just curious.
    How does the 142nd St. junction require a service change on the Grand Central Shuttle?

    Or, wait a second!
    What just popped into my mind is, could that have been a typo?
    Was that supposed to be “42nd St. junction”?

    • John Paul N. says:

      The shuttle will run overnight to provide an alternative to 2 trains that are not running between 96th Street and 149th/GC. This is in addition to the shuttle buses that replace the 2 and also the 7 train in which the S provides a more convenient transfer along 42nd Street.
