Attention G train riders: There will be no weekend service between Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn, and Queens every weekend in September and the first weekend in November, local officials announced according to Brooklyn Paper.
Community Board 2 said it was informed by MTA NYC Transit that for the next five weekends, free shuttle buses will replace G trains between Bedford-Nostrand Avenues in Brooklyn and Court Square in Queens. The buses will make all G train stops.
In a statement, the MTA said crews will make station improvements at Greenpoint Avenue, “including the installation of three new elevators and other updates to make the station fully accessible, as well as proactive track maintenance and infrastructure repairs on the G line. We are working hard to ensure that G service will be safe and reliable when more customers will be using the line and G stations as alternative service during the Canarsie L Tunnel repairs.”
Additionally, the MTA said that “future service changes related to this Greenpoint Avenute elevator project and proactive track maintenance will be announced closer to those dates.”
