The service changes are part of the transit agency’s Fastrack maintenance program.

During this time, E and R trains run express in both directions between Queens Plaza and Roosevelt Avenue, and M service ends early each night between Forest Hills-71st Avenue and Essex Street.

  • Customers may transfer between shuttle buses and the 7, E, F and R trains at 74th Street-Roosevelt Avenue, Queensboro Plaza 7 and N train or Queens Plaza E and R trains.
  • Regular late night R service operates in Brooklyn only between 95th Street and 36th Street.
  • M shuttle trains operate between Metropolitan Avenue and Myrtle Avenue all night.
