Plan to Use the Subway This Weekend? Good Luck

Transit headache on track for this weekend

    If you intend to use the subways to get around the city this beautiful weekend, you may want to come up with a Plan B. Yet again, the MTA plans to slash service in a big way, with precious few lines running on normal schedules.

    Users of the L train face one of the most egregious cuts, with no train service whatsoever between Williamsburg and Manhattan throughout the weekend. The changes take effect at 12:01 a.m. Saturday and last through 5 a.m. Monday.

    To alleviate the hassle to commuters, the MTA plans to keep the M-line, which normally shuts down on weekends, open. But that's little consolation to Williamsburg commuters, who will be subjected to shuttle bus routes and the M14. (Check out your options here.)

    D train service will be shut down between Herald Square and Pacific Street, and A and C trains skip Fulton St-Broadway Nassau Station in both directions.
