The MTA’s Weekender: The Way Around Weekend Work for October 23 - October 26
MTA New York City Transit plans to increase scheduled service on 12 subway lines with the most significant changes coming to the 42 St [S] shuttle’s weeknight service. The addition of 31 round trips planned for the [1][2][4][5][6][A][E][J][M][N][S] lines on weekdays, as well as the addition of 3 round trips planned for the [C] line on Sundays, reflect the subway system’s surging ridership and anticipated increased demand as residential and commercial development continues to change New York City’s landscape. NYC Subways moved an average of nearly 5.6 million daily customers in 2014, and 2015 subway ridership is on track to exceed that record. Crew and schedule changes will be finalized in the coming months and the service changes will go into effect in June 2016.
