Winter Storm 2016 | MTA Weekend Subway Service Advisory
For Changes Affecting 3 4 A L N
NOTE: All weekend work has been canceled due to the pending snow storm. Long term projects/ closures listed below remain.
Customers may visit our website at www.mta.info and check out The Weekender, accessible by clicking The Weekender tab located within the Service Status Menu. The Weekender makes it easy for riders to visualize exactly how weekend work will affect subway service.
The updated Weekender for Mobile App, which now includes MTA Subway Time data, is available for iPhone in the Apple app store, and in Google Play for Android devices. This free app shares features with the desktop version, including a subway diagram that displays the service provided each weekend and all service changes. Users can pinch or expand the map to multiple zoom levels, and tap to choose one of three ways to view service diversions: Service by Line, Service by Borough and Service by Station.
Customers can also download the apps at mta.info/apps/weekenderApp.html. TripPlanner+ provides travel information that takes weekend service diversions into account. In addition, customers can receive customized subway diversion e-mails by signing up for the E-mail Subscription Program at mta.info/nyct.
These weekend changes are necessary because of capital construction work on the MTA New York City Transit subway system. This work is part of NYC Transit’s ongoing Capital Rebuilding Program aimed at upgrading and maintaining our tracks, stations and signal systems in order to continue to provide our customers with safe and reliable service. For more information on the 2015-2019 Capital Program log on to mta.info/capital. Customers who rely on these lines should allow for additional travel time.
