Here’s an interesting bit of news before we get to the service advisories: The MTA and CNN are working on a deal that would put TV screens in the subway.
Helen Kennedy at the Daily News notes that the pilot program, as CNN will front the installation costs, will be free to the MTA, and the transit authority stands to benefit from increased advertising revenue. If that money-grabbing measure fails, we can always start taxing cigarette sales on Indian reservations to fund transit in New York. Someone save us with these stop-gap measures.
Anyway, while subway service is set for a few upgrades this weekend, we’ve still got a full slate of service advisories on tap. You can find these in convenient map form on Subway Weekender with separate maps for Saturday’s advisories and Sunday’s changes. It’s one of those weekends.
As always, these may be incomplete and are subject to change. Leave any corrections or amendments in the comments.
