MTA New York City Transit's FASTRACK initiative is an entirely new way to perform subway maintenance in our system. By completely suspending train service over a segment of a subway line, we give our workers uninterrupted access to tracks, signals, cables, lighting, third rail components, and platform edges.
The results of the FASTRACK maintenance projects completed this year represent an unprecedented amount of work accomplished. Most importantly, FASTRACK provides a safer and more efficient environment for our employees to inspect, maintain, and clean our 24/7 subway system.
Since we started the FASTRACK program in January of this year, our employees inspected hundreds of signals and switches, repaired and replaced track rails and cross ties, cleaned track floors, performed elevator and escalator repair work, repaired water damage, cleared drains, and cleaned stations. We cleared the track-bed of a significant amount of debris. We repainted areas untouched in years, because they are not reachable during normal train operation. We cleaned lighting fixtures, changed bulbs, and repaired platform edges. We also performed high-intensity station cleaning. These maintenance activities improve train performance and efficiency while also providing a visible improvement to the station environment and, of course, your commute.
FASTRACK returns to the on October 22, closing stations on the 59 St-Columbus Circle to Jay St-MetroTech and World Trade Center corridor. Please allow additional travel time.

- How does FASTRACK affect service?
Under the FASTRACK program, we will close a subway line segment only where nearby alternative subway service is available. On some lines, we will run subway service that normally doesn't run at night. We'll also ensure that no other service changes are planned on lines which provide alternate service.
