An end-of-week announcement for Monday before jumping into the service advisories: Jarret Walker, the voice behind Human Transit, will be in town on Monday to give a talk related to his new book. He’ll be speaking at the CUNY Graduate Center from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m., and his talk is entitled “Human Transit: How Clearer Thinking about Public Transit Can Enrich Our Communities and Our Lives.” For more info and to RSVP, check out this page.

    what is the big deal with the D running 2 sections due to broadway layfette work? I thought it going be working on the Manhattan Bridge. Since the F stops there why they need to suspend the D between 34th-Pacific St? Why they can’t put the D on the local track and it not that big deal

    • YJ says:

      There’s no switch at Broadway-Lafayette between the express and local track. There’s no way to get the D to Pacific Street and that’s why the service is split.

      And remember that they had said that the Bleecker/B’way-Lafayette project would be finished in January. Maybe it will be January 2013.

  2. The track panel installation at Halsey Street and Gates Avenue is taking quite a bit of time!!
