LIRR is cross-honoring metrocards only between 61st-Woodside and Penn Station.

“From 9:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. Saturday, February 28 and from 11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Sunday, March 1, E trains operate more frequently between Manhattan and Queens.”

Any particular reason why? It does not appear to be making up for any reduction in service on another line. Sorry to sound cynical, but it just seems odd that there is an increase in service!

The additional E-train service could be an attempt to better handle #7 train riders traveling to/from Manhattan. During the weekend as noted:

“7 trains are suspended in both directions between Times Sq-42 St and 74 St-Broadway. Use EFN and R trains for service between Manhattan and Queens. E trains operate more frequently between Manhattan and Queens.”

The E-train does travel from the Times Square area directly to 74th Street-Roosevelt Avenue making it a reasonable substitute for the missing #7 train service, while still offering a set of transfers to the eastside #4 and #6 lines that many #7 riders use.

Just a thought.

Here’s the question I have: why is “Trains operate more frequently” the title, while “Some trains run to 179 St” in the description? Shouldn’t it be the other way around?

A passenger scanning the list needs to immediately know that a given E train might not go to a stop that the map says all E trains go to. This is especially important since one of those stops is a transfer point for the airport.
