Changes on the D,F, G, M and N


Jesse Mislavsky:  I'm Jesse Mislavsky, and you're listening to the “Planned Service Changes” for this weekend on TransitTrax, New York City Transit's podcast service.  Here's a guide to a few of the significant changes in subway service, scheduled for this weekend on the D, F, G, M and N. These changes will affect service September 8 through 11. These changes are due to necessary capital construction and rehabilitation work – work that may cause you to ride backward just to go forward – or change your traveling pattern all together.
For those commuters who plan to use the D line on the weekend, there is a service change that will affect your commute. Please listen carefully as Jared Elmore from Operations Planning explains.

Jared Elmore: Beginning 11:30 PM to 5 AM, September 8 through 11, service is rerouted via the A in Manhattan and via the F in Brooklyn.
As travel alternatives, use A,C, and E stations on 8 Av or N,Q, and R stations on Broadway to complete your trip.
· Transfer at Times Sq A,C,E, and F Jay St-MetroTech A,D,N, and R, or 4 Av-9 St D,F,G, and R.

Jesse Mislavsky:  Because construction projects can be canceled, be sure to consult our website, www.mta.info, for Service Status and Planned Service Changes. While there, you may also opt to use our Trip Planner+ which provides you with customized travel directions that take subway service changes into account, while giving you up to three alternate route options.
Also available is our free Email Notification Program. You can sign up for weekday or weekend notifications about both planned reroutes and real-time changes in service.
Finally, you may also dial 511 for travel information for all MTA services. It’s good information, so you’ll “Know Before You Go!”
For TransitTrax, I'm Jesse Mislavsky. Thanks for listening, and thanks for riding with New York City Transit.
