This week L is for Ludicrous (no, don’t get excited, not Ludacris, although I do love you Luda!) because quite frankly the Bushwick trains can just be so ridiculous and foolish sometimes.
* Before I go into my spiel about the L/M train’s future dramatics, I must let you know that as of 12:10PM today due to NYPD activity, the L train is running with delays in both directions. Now I shall proceed…
During the week of Feb 3-7, Mon through Friday from 11-3PM:
Okay so the L’s service change is not too much of a hassle (I guess) but gather around because the M train is (per usual) being a diva.
Firstly, during Feb 3-6 from 9:45PM – 12 Midnight:
Oh, and I must remind you of the MTA’s Late Night M Service Change a la the Late Night Subway Service Map (wait, what?). Yes, that is right – there is a Nighttime Service map that uses cryptic symbols and lines to show you when service becomes all wonky and the train lines become shape-shifters.
Abridged version: Starting at midnight the M train will only operate between Myrtle Av and Metropolitan Av (apparently the M train has a curfew).
So bundle yourselves up, bring a good book or make a good “waiting-for-the-train-that-will-never-come” playlist and allow yourself some extra travel time. To keep up with the subway’s fickle nature check out mta.info and, as always, Happy Riding!2014-01-30
