Regular Rush Hour Service Expected on F G Lines

With temporary repairs made and power now being provided through normal Con Edison distribution lines to our network of signals along the F G lines in the area affected by Sunday's manhole fires in Brooklyn, NYC Transit will be able to operate regularly scheduled service on both lines.

However, service may be impacted by residual delays, the result of trains running on significant diversions for most of the day.

Portable generators dispatched to the affected area will remain in place as a precaution.
