Check out these service changes before taking the subway this weekend.

Construction work to upgrade and maintain stations, tracks and signal systems is affecting weekend service on several of the city’s subway lines. The MTA is advising customers to allow for extra travel time if they rely on any of these trains.

Additionally, the MTA’s railroads are operating on special schedules this weekend because of the holiday, and routine maintenance and temporary construction work at all MTA Bridges and Tunnels crossings will be suspended through early Monday morning, December 2.
