No. 1 train out of service for next two weekends


There will be no No. 1 train service from Friday, Sept. 17 at 11:30 p.m. to Monday, Sept. 20 at 5 a.m. Service will be suspended again from Friday, Sept. 24 at 11:30 p.m. to Monday, Sept. 27 at 5 a.m.

Free shuttle buses will replace trains on Broadway between 242nd Street and 207th Street stations, on Saint Nicholas Avenue between West 191st Street and West 168th Street, on Broadway between 168th Street and 96th Street and in Lower Manhattan between Chambers Street and South Ferry.

Passengers can also get on the A train at Broadway and West 207th Street.

Express shuttle busses will run nonstop between 96th and 137th Streets, making stops at West 145th Street, West 157th Street and West 168th Street. Local shuttle buses will make all stops between 96th and 168th Streets.

The service change is due to “a long-term station renewal project involving several stations,” according to documents from the MTA. Work will be done to fix tracks and make renovations to stations.

A station worker at the West 242nd Street stop said the Dyckman Street station will see more changes than most in the area.

Pamphlets outlining the changes, as well as alternate routes, are available at token booths.
