The MTA has updated an overnight map that outlines service changes between midnight and 6 a.m.

The fourth version of the “popular guide” shows changes in services, including lines that generally run express but stop on the local track overnight, and information on night shuttle trains and buses that travel to local airports.

The most significant change is the N and R train route through the Montague Tunnel, which was closed for repairs for more than a year, and re-opened last month.

According to the MTA, the maps have become collectors items since being first introduced in 2012. The current issue includes a Maya Angelou’s poem “Awaking in New York” and artwork by William Low, called “A Day in Parkchester.”

The art was commissioned by MTA Arts & Design.

The MTA has printed 100,000 of the latest maps, which are available in subway stations and on the Staten Island Railway.

“Our system is the only major subway system in the world that operates 24 hours a day, but the map that most customers are familiar with doesn’t show how our service operates during a crucial part of the day,” said New York City Transit President Carmen Bianco. “To the 250,000 customers who use our subways during the late and overnight hours to get to work, to get home or to enjoy this city that never sleeps – this map is for you.”
