Weekend work affecting all but Q and R trains

By

Next week, I’ll tackle the MTA’s new fare payment plans and a familiar name entering with a familiar technology. It certainly would be something if, after all these years, the MTA ends up adopting this technology, but that’s a conversation for next week.

If you’re looking for some weekend reading, the city named Adam Giambrone the head of the Brooklyn-Queens Connector, and New York Magazine published quite the profile. Giambrone, as city officials assured me, is certainly an expert in planning streetcars, but he carries with him some scandal-plagued years in Toronto. He also doesn’t seem quite familiar with New York City and will be thrown into the fire of a tempestuous project that many are eying skeptically for a variety of reasons.

Meanwhile, there are plenty of weekend service changes to go around. As always, these come to me from the MTA and may change without notice. Check signs; listen to announcements; stay out of the heat.
