Straphangers looking to go between Penn Station and South Ferry or the Barclays Center on the 1, 2 or 3 trains after 10 p.m. will need to find alternate transportation this week and next.
Due to the return of the MTA’s Fastrack on the 1, 2 and 3 train lines, there will be no service between 34th Street-Penn Station and South Ferry or Atlantic Avenue/Barclays Center this Monday through Thursday and between Oct. 23 to Oct. 26 from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m.
The Fastrack work is part of the agency’s Subway Action Plan that Chairman Joe Lhota announced in July, which promised improvements on the aged and beleaguered system within one year.
The night work on the 1, 2 and 3 lines will include repairing and replacing track, third rail, electrical and signal components as well as removing track debris and tunnel infrastructure repairs.
Additionally, station improvements such as painting, sign repairs and more will also be made during the work.
So how do I get around without the 1, 2 or 3 train?
Because there will be no service between Penn Station and South Ferry/Barclays Center, straphangers are urged to use:
• A, C, E, N, Q, R or W trains for service between 34th Street/Penn Station and South Ferry/Brooklyn
• 5 trains for service between Flatbush Avenue-Brooklyn College and the Wakefield-241st Street 2 station.
• 1 trains will operate between Van Cortlandt Park-242nd Street and 34th Street/Penn Station
• 2 trains will run between Eastchester-Dyre Avenue 5 train station and 34th Street-Penn Station
• Free shuttle buses will run between the Harlem-148th Street and 135th Street 3 stations as the 3 train service is suspended.
The next Fastrack overnight work will take place Nov. 6-10 and Nov. 13-17 on the N, Q, R and W stations in Manhattan.
