It’s been nearly a month since the MTA’s last FASTRACK treatment, but the program returns tonight in Queens. From 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. each night this week, there will be no local service at 36th Street, Steinway Street, 46th Street, Northern Blvd. and 65th Street in both directions as all Queens Boulevard trains will run express. For those heading looking to avoid a five-stop local slog, it’s good news, but for everyone else, consider these alternate routes:
- Free shuttle buses run local between Queens Plaza and 74th Street-Roosevelt Avenue, making station stops at Queens Plaza, Queensboro Plaza, 36th Street, Steinway Street 46th Street, Northern Boulevard and 65th Street.
- Customers may transfer between shuttle buses and the 7 E F R trains at 74th Street-Roosevelt Avenue, Queensboro Plaza 7 N or Queens Plaza E R.
- Regular late night R service operates in Brooklyn only between 95th Street and 36th Street.
- M shuttle trains operate between Metropolitan Avenue and Myrtle Avenue all night.
The next FASTRACK begins on August 26th and it will impact the A train north of 168th St.
