| jlane@queenscourier.com |



The New York City Subway and the Staten Island Railway will operate on a regular weekday schedule throughout Friday, April 6, Good Friday and the start of Passover. However, there will be some adjustments to MTA services as noted below.

 

New York City Buses

 

New York City Transit and MTA Bus Company buses will operate their regular weekday hours of service and travel paths with minor scheduling adjustments on some routes. There will be no Limited-Stop bus service in Staten Island on the S81, S84, S86, S90, S91, S92, S94, S96 and S98.  There is no Limited-Stop bus service in Queens on the Q6, Q21, Q25 and Q65.

 

Long Island Rail Road

 

The LIRR will operate a regular weekday schedule with nine additional eastbound trains from Penn Station, between 2:08 PM and 3:48 PM, for customers leaving work early in observance of Passover and Good Friday, April 6. There will be three additional trains on the Babylon Branch, three on the Port Jefferson Branch, two on the Port Washington Branch, and one on the Far Rockaway Branch.

 

For details, see the attached press release from the LIRR.

 

Metro-North Railroad

 

Metro-North will operate a regular weekday schedule, even though ridership is expected to be down a third from a normal Friday, so there is plenty of capacity for people who want to leave New York early. There is, however, one service change.

 

There will be an additional early afternoon super express on the Hudson Line, departing Grand Central Terminal at 3:25 PM and stopping only at Beacon, New Hamburg and Poughkeepsie. The 6:12 PM express from New York that is normally due Poughkeepsie at 7:43 PM, will not operate.

 

MTA Bridges and Tunnels

 

All temporary roadway closures will be lifted by 1 PM on Friday April 6, in anticipation of an early rush-hour period.
