Hello, riders! We’re very excited for the upcoming (and well-deserved) three-day weekend, and we hope you are too.
If you're traveling within or outside of the city this weekend, public transit is the best way to get around — and we’re here to help you plan your trip.
Major things to know: On Saturday and Sunday, the subway will run on a regular weekend schedule. On Memorial Day, the subway will run on a Sunday schedule. That means there will be no service on the and trains; no express or trains; and no express trains in Brooklyn. And on Memorial Day, Long Island Rail Road and Metro-North Railroad train will run on a Sunday schedule.
We're using the three-day weekend to work on some crucial infrastructure projects, such as switch replacement work in Brooklyn and track replacements in Manhattan. Here's why we do that work over holiday weekends.
For more details on how service will be affected across all modes of transit, check out our Planned Work tool and search for your subway, bus, or rail line.
These service changes are subject to change, so check the MTA homepage before heading out; it's where you'll find up-to-the-minute information on subway, bus, and rail service.
