Here are the overnight subway service disruptions for early 2016

The MTA’s Fastrack program is returning this month and that means subway changes for late night commuters.

Brooklyn straphangers who use the 2 train will be the first ones suffering from the suspensions.

According to the MTA, beginning Tuesday, Jan. 19, from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m., for four consecutive weeknights, and from Monday, Jan. 25, to early morning Friday, Jan. 29, 2 trains are suspended in both directions between Franklin Av and Flatbush Av-Brooklyn College. 3 service will also end earlier than usual each night in Brooklyn. Take 2 or 4 trains instead. 2 service will operate between Wakefield-241 St and the Crown Hts-Utica Av 4 station in Brooklyn. Free shuttle buses provide alternate service.

Travel alternatives:
  • For service between Franklin Av and Flatbush Av-Brooklyn College, take free shuttle buses.
  • Transfer between free shuttle buses and 2 trains at the Franklin Av station.
  • 2 trains make all 3 line station stops between Chambers St and Crown Hts-Utica Av.
  • 4 trains make all 3 line station stops between Nevins St and New Lots Av. 4 train service to New Lots Av will begin earlier than usual each night.
  • Transfer between 2 and 4 trains at Crown Hts-Utica Av. 
  • Consider using Q trains to/from nearby stations in Flatbush.
