Getting Around Times Square While We Work

Check here for updates on alternate travel options while work inside the station continues

As part of the 42 St Connection Project, we're replacing elevators, escalators, and adding new stairs to make it easier to get in to, out of, and around Times Square-42 St Station.


In Times Square, we permanently closed the staircase between Shuttle Track 4 that connects the Shuttle platform with the street between 42nd and 43rd Sts. We're replacing it with a larger point of entry.

Alternate Travel Options

To access the Shuttle from the street, use the stairways at Broadway and W 42 St. To access the street from the platform, use the alternate stairway in the station toward Broadway and W 42 St.

Train Service

The 42 St Shuttle will continue to operate most times while we work through 2022. For the most up-to-date planned service change information and alternative travel options, check our Planned Service Change page.
