Weekend work affecting 12 subway lines

By · Published in 2014

This was a bit of a light week. My new job gives me less time for posts, and I appreciate you all sticking with me through busier and less active weeks. It was also a slow news week as any transit-related developments were put on hold for Election Day. I’m sure we’ll hear more from the MTA Reinvention Commission and word on the fare hikes now that Cuomo doesn’t have to run up the score against anyone.

Next week, I’ll have a look at the new Fulton St. Transit Center after this Sunday’s ribbon-cutting and some developments on the plan, now in jeopardy, to bring the PATH train to Newark airport. Tonight, we have service advisories.

    As an amateur blogger myself, I’m amazed that you can keep up this pace. And that you have so few typos. Do you have a volunteer copy editor? I can never see them all, because my brain knows what I meant to write.

    Room Eight was started in 2006. I’m the only person who was asked to write for it that still writes regularly.

      I second that–I don’t know how you find the time. This site is a great source for news and analysis and it is greatly appreciated!

    Weird, there are signs up that the G is running in sections and only every 20 minutes between Court Sq and Bedford-Nostrand, but no mention of it in the weekend service advisory.

    Does anyone know what’s going on with the 6 express service in the Bronx during the even rush hours on weekdays? Between 3rd Ave-138th St. and Hunts Pt. all uptown trains are running on the local, while the express track AND downtown local tracks are being used for downtown trains. The Pelham Bay Park bound express resumes at Hunts Pt. but I can’t find anything explaining why it’s suspended during the aforementioned segment if the local track is still in use.

    Benjamin, is there any way you could look into Transit Wireless’s current build out plans? They announced more than three weeks ago that they were finished with Phase II (mostly in Queens), and were beginning Phase III. But they never announced what stations they are starting work on. The announcement only specified a handful of specific stations in Phase III: “Phase III of the project will include the Flushing Main Street Station in Queens, as well as stations in Lower Manhattan, West Harlem and Washington Heights. Major stations in Phase III include the Fulton Street Station, 125 Street Station and the new 34 Street 7 Station when it opens next year.”

    I’m surprised that there hasn’t been any media follow up asking them for more specific plans. As an F-train rider from Brooklyn who has no countdown clocks, and no wifi/cell service until 14th Street, I’d love to know if some useful downtown stations will be coming. And for the future, knowing that it may be a decade before we get countdown clocks, I’m really hoping that the wifi buildout will allow app developers to use that data for rough live arrival information.
