We’re hoping this isn’t like last week, where we get excited about normal service along the F and G lines, only to find out tomorrow that actually they’ll be skipping local stops again. Still, we’re cautiously optimistic!
There are some other service changes to local lines you should look out for this weekend, however. Here’s the info from the MTA:
No 4 trains running
5 trains replace the 4 in Brooklyn and Manhattan. D trains and free shuttle buses provide alternate service in the Bronx — see the shuttle bus routes here.
