The MTA announced today that service will be suspended on the No. 7 train between Times Square and Queensboro Plaza on five weekends this year as part of on-going construction. In the meantime, there will be the usual round of alternatives for Long Island City residents:1
During the suspensions, riders can take free shuttle buses at affected stations to go to Queensboro Plaza, where they can take an N or Q train. Otherwise, they should take the E, F, and N trains servicing Queens. The Long Island Railroad will also cross-honor MetroCards in both directions between Penn Station and Woodside.
These are the five weekends where 7 trains will be out of service:
- Oct. 18-20
- Oct. 25-27
- Nov. 8-10
- Nov. 15-17
- Nov. 22-24
