    I know you get these straight from the MTA, but I wanted to point out for folks that both yesterday and today, no work is showing as taking place on the #7 train. “Good Service” is showing as of now – 14:17 Sunday.
    And to add to their mistake, they wrote ‘Sunday, July 2’ – so was it supposed to be SATURDAY, JULY 2 or SUNDAY, JULY 3? Or did they really screw the you-know-what and mean MONDAY, JULY 4th? (I doubt that, though).

    • Ike says:

      Yeah, I really expected the #7 to run express today (Sunday) based on the weekend work notices posted in the stations. Instead the #7 went local and there was no work. After looking more carefully at the posted notices, I realized this work was only happening on Saturday. I hadn’t been reading them carefully enough. It’s easy to just assume all weekend work lasts all weekend long. But occasionally it’s one day only.

      Oh and of course “Sunday, July 2” is extra confusing. They didn’t do that on the actual printed notices.

    Am I crazy or does the MTA Service Advisory (http://alert.mta.info/) often not mention the planned weekend work that Ben mentions here?
