There’s no better way to get around New York City than the subway system and that has been the case for more than a century. In observing the 111th anniversary of North America’s largest subway, customers should note that the system has recently been expanded by one station – the newly opened 34th Street – Hudson Yards terminal. While making it far more convenient to reach Manhattan’s far West Side, the Flushing Line’s latest addition will spur tremendous growth in the surrounding area just as the subway did for the City.

Total of 31 Weekday Round Trips and 3 Sunday Round Trips Added to Meet Ridership Growth

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.
