Service information for L, M, G, 7, M14 SBS and free transfers

L train service will resume its previous service schedules with adjustments under MTA Essential Service and the L Project service alternatives will end as of April 27, 2020. This is following the completion of the L Project tunnel rehabilitation phase on April 26, 2020.

L service

Frequency: We are operating as much service as we can with our limited crews under MTA Essential Service. Currently, L trains are running more frequently on weekends than during the L Project tunnel rehabilitation phase. Check our website for the latest service information.

Route: Trains will resume running on both tracks during most times. This means if you're at:

  • A station with a platform in the middle (i.e. Bedford Av): Trains will arrive on both tracks, going in the direction as indicated on our signs
  • A station with different entrances depending on the direction you're heading (i.e. 1 Av or 3 Av): Trains will arrive on both tracks. Use the entrance that aligns with the direction you're going (i.e. if you're at 1 Av and want to head toward 8 Av, go to the entrance for 8 Av-bound service)

M service

Frequency: M trains were running as frequently as every 10 minutes on weekends before the L Project tunnel rehabilitation. Currently, M train frequencies are subject to MTA Essential Service. Check our website for the latest service information.

Route

  • The M no longer serves the Second Avenue Line. The Q continues to provide service to/from 96 St-2 Av.
  • M service along the 6 Av Line ends earlier on weekday evenings. The last M train to Brooklyn along 6 Av departs 34 St-Herald Sq at approximately 9 PM; the last M train to Forest Hills-71 Av departs Delancey-Essex Sts at approximately 9 PM
  • Between approximately 9 PM and approximately 11 PM on weekdays, and between 6:30 AM (Saturdays) or 8:30 AM (Sundays) and 11 PM on weekends, M service operates between Metropolitan Av and Delancey-Essex Sts. The F continues to provide 6 Av local service.
  • After 11 PM, service operates only as a shuttle between Metropolitan Av and Myrtle Av-Broadway.

G service

Frequency: G trains were running as frequently as every 10 minutes on weekends before the L Project tunnel rehabilitation. Currently, G train frequencies are subject to MTA Essential Service. Check our website for the latest service information.

Route: There was no route change for the L Project tunnel rehabilitation phase, so there is no change now.

7 service

Frequency: We were running extra weeknight trips on the 7 during the L Project. Currently, 7 train frequencies are subject to MTA Essential Service. Check our website for the latest service information.

Route: There was no route change for the L Project tunnel rehabilitation phase, so there is no change.

M14 SBS

Frequency: We were running extra M14A service to connect to Delancey-Essex Sts Station. This has ended. Service frequencies are subject to MTA Essential Service. Check our website for the latest service information.

Route: We implemented SBS on the M14 during the L Project, and that will remain in effect.

Free transfers

  • Between Livonia St on the L and Junius St on the 3: We made this a permanent free transfer in February 2020
  • Connecting from Broadway on the G to either Hewes St or Lorimer St on the J and M: We're giving some flexibility as the L Project alternate service plan has ended. As of now, this free transfer is planned to remain through May 31, 2020.
