For Changes Affecting 1 2 3 4 5 6 A C D E F J L M N Q R

Customers may visit mta.info and check out The Weekender, accessible by clicking the Weekender tab in the Service Status Menu. The Weekender makes it easy for subway riders to visualize exactly how weekend work will affect subway service.

The Weekender for Mobile App includes MTA Subway Time data and is available for iPhone in the Apple app store, and in the Google Play store for Android devices.  This free app shares the same features as the desktop version, including a subway diagram that displays the service to be 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 web.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 delivered to their inbox by signing up for the E-mail Subscription Program by clicking here.

These weekend changes are part of capital construction work on the MTA New York City Transit subway system.  NYC Transit’s ongoing Capital Rebuilding Program upgrades and maintains tracks, stations and signal infrastructure in order to continue to provide our customers with safe and reliable service.  For more information on the 2015-2019 Capital Program, click here.   Customers who rely on these lines should allow for additional travel time.
