They have this at some stations, but it's hard to find. It may need to be electronic since service patterns change throughout the day.

Perhaps to improve discoverability they could put such electronic screens near the existing Help Points?

We need as many good pics and videos of the R32 as their days may be more numbered than we thought. I think the date got moved back closer vs the push back to 2022 operation. They may not make it past 2019.

On Monday, the (Q) will run between 57th Street and Coney Island until the Second Avenue line opens. When it opens, it will run to 96th Street.


The (R) will have one change. The (R) runs from Bay Ridge to 36th Street from 11:00 PM to about 6:00 AM. On Monday, the late-night (R) will be extended to Whitehall street.

In that image pack above, Chambers Street Station really looks like absolute shit!!! Is there any chance of renovating that? It looks like half the tiles on the columns are missing!

I bet that there are many transit fans taking advantage of the "W" today.

Question:

So while the Q terminates at 57/7th, will it continue out of service to 96th/2nd as a test train? Or will it sit in some layup track waiting for its scheduled time to head back south?

I presume the former.

Can't...take...the image...of transit...fans...taking...advantage of...the "W"...train...out of...my...mind...

The question that lingers is: will they take advantage of it all at once, or take turns?

I went to that station for the first time last month and my jaw dropped (it really looks like it was bombed in WWII or something)... unforgivable. It really needs to be in the top 5 list of stations that need renovation in the next few years

The cover of the 7 train timetable still extols the Hudson Yards extension, which opened more than a year ago.

MTA press release

http://www.mta.info/press-release/ny...mers-m-viaduct

Nov 8 2016

Quote:
Service Enhancements and Changes to LJMZ Lines Prepare Customers for M Viaduct Repairs


Added Service Coming to the L Line in Summer 2017

MTA New York City Transit plans to increase weekday and weekend service on the Canarsie Line as ridership continues to grow in Brooklyn.
The addition of 50 roundtrips on the line is part of a package of service changes planned for June 2017. Other service changes slated for the summer will be implemented in preparation for the partial closure of the line to repair two century-old structures.
The Line will see increased service on weekdays and weekends as more customers use the line along 14th Street in Manhattan and growing neighborhoods in Brooklyn. NYC Transit plans to add 11 roundtrips during weekdays, and 12 roundtrips during Saturday mornings and afternoons. A total of 27 roundtrips will be added to service on Sundays from morning to evening. Weekday service will be added in preparation for an expected increase in customers who will use the when the partial closure of the line begins later in 2017.
"Our subway system turned 112 this year, and it never gets a break. In order to keep up with demand, we must work now to shore up our infrastructure so trains can keep running for another hundred years,” NYC Transit President Ronnie Hakim said. “Adding more trips helps get our customers where they need to be faster, but we also must balance that extra strain on our equipment and fleet with a robust maintenance program and an eye on investing in our future."
Starting in summer 2017, NYC Transit plans to demolish and rebuild the Myrtle Viaduct, which was built in 1913, and the Atlantic Railway Bridge at Fresh Pond Rd. The reconstruction of these two structures is critical to the repair plans for the Canarsie Tunnel, which was flooded during Superstorm Sandy in 2012. When work on the Canarsie Tunnel begins in 2019, many customers are expected to use the lines between Brooklyn and Manhattan, which will require adding service to those lines. Repairs to line infrastructure are required to increase service safely.
To accommodate the closure of the line during this work, temporary long-term service changes on the lines will be implemented in July 2017. These changes include:
On weekdays, trains will operate between the Forest Hills-71 Av station and the Broadway Junction station. Some trains will operate between Forest Hills-71 Av and the 2 Av station during afternoon peak hours. Alternate bus service will be provided to stations that are closed during the reconstruction projects.
trains will make all stops between Broadway Junction and Marcy Av.

Does NYC get federal funding for transport projects? Looks like that will be gone now.
