We got some news, Brokesters. And you won’t be happy. So, take a seat.
As reported in Gothamist, the MTA posted some new L service changes and it ain’t pretty. “The L train will not run between Broadway Junction and 8th Avenue, from 10:45 pm until 5 a.m. every weekday until November 30th, because of ‘track maintenance.’ Ugh.
Oh, you were planning to go somewhere? Home? Work? Socializing? Guess not!
So, what is the alternative? Commuter have the terrible glory of taking a free shuttle bus in Brooklyn, but the M14 crosstown bus will run in Manhattan. So, if you need to get from BK to Manhattan (or vice versa), you’ll have to hop on one of these buses to the J or A lines. So, your commutes or travel plans just got a lot longer.
Also, Gothamist went on to note of other travel changes: “From 11 a.m. and 3 p.m., on Monday through Friday, from now until November 16th, L trains will run every 12 minutes between Myrtle-Wyckoff and Rockaway Parkway. The MTA cites ‘signal improvements’ as the reason for this slow-down.” We guess the MTA doesn’t care if anyone needs to commute or visit another location, ever. There’s one silver lining to this: regular service will commence on Halloween, so rejoice, you spooky revelers.
Here’s a chart to guide you on your travels through November. Godspeed.
📌Reminder: Weeknight L service between Broadway Junction in Brooklyn and 8th Av in Manhattan ends early, at approximately 10:45 PM, depending on your station. Get the details at the station booth or check out https://t.co/EyOa8lGFu7 to plan your trip. 1/2 pic.twitter.com/8tILQkGuBo
