Weekend work affecting 12 subway lines

By

Earlier on Friday, with a potential LIRR strike less than ten days away, the MTA unveiled its contingency planning. As you might expect, it relies, in part, on a wing and a prayer. The LIRR has approached numerous companies to ask that they allow employees to telecommute, but for many that’s a non-starter. Instead the MTA recommends everything from ferries (hooray) to taking vacation time. It’s not pretty, but there’s plenty of time left for the sides to come to terms prior to the strike.

Meanwhile, New York City denizens have this weekend’s service changes with which to contend. Here you go:
