    Why even bother with the E? Just say it’s not running and run extra F trains that run to Parsons/Archer (or not), even if some terminate at 2nd Avenue.

    • Alek says:

      It would confuse riders and this is not the full weekend work.

      Good thing that they are providing shuttle buses from Queensbridge to Court Sq. Better than taking the R local.

  2. John says:

    I’m surprised they just don’t run the E via the 63rd St. crossover down the Broadway line to Whitehall. That does a better job of covering the same area the E normally covers downtown, even if you lose the A/C transfer option at West Fourth.

    • Alek says:

      Whitehall is not a good idea to handle many trains since the montauge tube is suffering problems. Switches @ whitehall is suffing problems too.

      The MTA wants give riders close walking distance from 8th ave to 6th ave lines and the West 4th transfer is the key for E train riders who needs WTC stop so they can take the A/C from there. Also it would cause the Q to terminate somewhere else due to 57th st flyover

    Coming to think of it, did they even announce WHEN the long-term shutdown of the R train tunnel will begin?
