Home Service Advisories Weekend work impacting only nine subway lines

Weekend work impacting only nine subway lines

by Benjamin Kabak

As the sun sets on another week, it’s time once again for the weekend service advisories. With the December holiday season in full swing and tourists flocking to the Big Apple, the MTA has cut back on the impact of its weekend plans, as you’ll see below. It’s a welcome reprieve for regular riders who don’t have to worry about too many headaches while navigating the subways during December.

Before I jump into the changes, I just wanted to thank everyone who came out last night for the Second Ave. Sagas’ 5th Anniversary Soiree. We had an excellent turnout, and it was great to meet so many readers. Hopefully, we’ll do it again soon.

Now, the weekend changes. As always, these come to me via Transit and are subject to change. Listen to on-board announcements and check signs in your local stations. Subway Weekender has the changes, and don’t forget about the Saturday Nostalgia Train rides.
