MTA Advisory

Visit the MTA’s page for service changes during the coronavirus pandemic.

Subway service (as of Thursday, March 26)

  • B, W, and Z service is not running. Alternatives:
    • B: Use C, D, and Q service instead.
    • W: Use N and R service instead.
    • Z: Use J service instead.

L service: Read more about service alternatives during the L Project, included extended M service.

Staten Island Railway: The Staten Island Railway will run every 20 minutes during peak hours, making all local stops, and will run hourly during overnight hours, in order to match the scaled back ferry service.

Branch service that’s not operating

  • 5 service between Nereid Av and E 180 St in the Bronx. Use 2 service instead.
  • 5 service between Bowling Green and Brooklyn College-Flatbush Av. Use 4 and 2 service instead.
  • A service between Broad Channel and Rockaway Park. Use the S shuttle to connect with Far Rockaway A service.
  • E service between Jamaica-179 St and Union Turnpike. Use F service instead.

Suspended express service

  • There will be no express service on the 4, 5, and 6 lines in the Bronx.
  • D trains will make local stops in the Bronx and will run express in Manhattan and Brooklyn.
  • There is no 7 express service.
  • F trains will make all local stops in Manhattan and Brooklyn and will continue to run express in Queens.
  • N Express in Manhattan – N trains will make all local stops in Manhattan and will continue to run express in Brooklyn. J trains will make all local stops.
  • Staten Island Railway will make all local stops.

Bus service

Starting Thursday, March 26, buses will operate at 75% of normal service. This reflects a steep drop in ridership, which means we need fewer buses to meet our riders’ needs. Running fewer buses also decreases crowding in our depot facilities. However, if you rely on the bus to get where you’re going, we’re there for you.

Railroad service

Beginning Friday, March 27, the Long Island Rail Road and Metro-North Railroad will be operating reduced service.
West of Hudson service is operating on a weekend schedule until further notice.

Seniors

Please contact the senior center before you go to pick up your Grab and Go meal. DFTA has requested that senior centers prepare meals for three days to give to seniors starting tomorrow, March 19th. These meals will be for Thursday, Friday and Monday!
