    E:Track gangs will be working between Lexington Ave and Jamaica all night long cause your commute time to triple.

    In some ways this format was easier to read, with the subway line bullets that numbers don’t come through on the RSS. So here I was able to skim through the changes in Feedly while normally I’d have to connect to the site.

  3. Michael says:

    I just noticed that there’s a difference between what’s listed above and what’s on the MTA website.

    The #5 train is not running from Dyre Avenue to East 180th Street all weekend, which both sets of web pages agree upon.

    The MTA webpages say that the #5 IS running from East 180th Street to Bowling Green during its normal span of hours.

    This webpage says that the #5 IS ONLY running from East 180th Street to 42nd Street-Grand Central station, at a frequency of every 20 minutes.

    For me, the telling bit of information is that the #4 line is NOT LISTED as running local on Lexington Avenue, which is usually what happens when the #5 ends at 42nd Street-Grand Central station – those trains have to terminate and relay on the uptown express track. That is usually done only when there’s no express service ON the express tracks.

    Both webpages show that there are no changes this weekend to the #4 train service and its usual express operation.

    In any case, just a head’s up.

      The information for the 5 line was simply copy/pasted over from last weekend’s service changes, instead of being changed to reflect the actual service in place.

  4. Brooklynite says:

    Just like last week, I’m interested why “E trains run more frequently” is listed first, while “some E trains don’t serve the airport” is only in the description. Why do they even need to mention the frequency?

    • Alek says:

      It for those some travelers doesn’t realize that some E train doesn’t serve the airport stop.

      • Brooklynite says:

        What I’m saying is “SOME E TRAINS DO NOT SERVE THE AIRPORT” should be in big bold letters up top, not hidden in the description. Looking at the map, one would think that every E train serves Jamaica/JFK, and seeing “E trains run more frequently” would not make one keep reading.

    • sonicboy678 says:

      I’m going to be quite literal about this, but…since when did the subway serve an airport?

  5. Michael says:

    Again the #7 train is only running between Roosevelt Avenue/74th Street and Flushing, Queens. Which means the E train has to take up the slack for the #7 train on trips between Manhattan and Queens.

    Meaning that about 2/3 of the #7 has either no train service (the entire Manhattan segment) or the riders have to use two sets of shuttle buses. The E-train in a sense replaces the service from Times Square to Roosevelt Avenue, while providing somewhat similar transfers to the eastside subway lines.

    The extra E-train service shows that the MTA is “trying” to do something to help regular #7 train riders who have to suffer weekend upon weekend for months at a time of reduced service. Public relations wise such a move helps the MTA and the riders cope with the constant weekend service disruptions.

    • Alek says:

      Also not to mention that the E train links many different transfer points:

      -Queens Plaza for the R if they are lucky the R arrives at same time.

      -Court Square

      -Lex Ave/53rd street for the 6 to Grand Central

      -42nd Street (Times Square)

      -Penn Station.

      Also not to mention that the MTA didn’t put up that the LIRR is cross honoring only between Woodside/Penn in their signs. It mentions online and the Woodside stop (metrocards will be honored)

      • Brooklynite says:

        Yep, the E is extra important for the 7 disruption. But I’d still say that trains not serving an airport stop is more relevant to mention first than trains running more often.

        • Tower18 says:

          Is this actually a service *decrease* for Archer Av, or are all the extra E trains this weekend 179th trains? If not a decrease for Archer Av, it’s less of a big deal.

  6. Ike says:

    Some friends pointed out to me that the Weekender failed to incorporate that the Coney-bound D train is running on the N line. Good thing I noticed that info posted in D stations (and here too, of course) before heading out to 25th/86th today.
