There will be changes on three subway lines overnight this week.

Starting Monday night, there will be service disruptions on the N, Q and R trains between the hours of 10 p.m. and 5 a.m for four consecutive weeknights, as part of the MTA’s Fastrack maintenance program:

  • N trains run in Queens and Brooklyn only.
  • Q trains run in Brooklyn and are rerouted via the D line in Manhattan.
  • R service ends early in Manhattan and Queens each night. (R shuttle service between 95th Street and 36th Street, Brooklyn runs all night.)

Travel alternatives

  • In Queens, take the M (or E local) instead of the R.
  • Take the 7 for service between Queens and Manhattan.
  • In Manhattan, use nearby stations on the 8th Avenue (A, E), 7th Avenue (1, 2) 6th Avenue (D, F, Q) and Lexington Avenue (4, 6) Lines.
  • Take the 2, 4, D, F or Q between Manhattan and Brooklyn.
  • N trains make local R stops between Jay Street-MetroTech and 36th Street.
