'A' Train Upcoming Service Advisories

Due to track work, starting on weekends in May, the A train line will experience various service re-routes and interruptions.

New York City Transit will be doing track maintenance work on the South Channel Bridge, which the A train line uses to travel between Broad Channel and the Rockaway peninsula and along the Rockaway line between the Howard Beach-JFK station and the Rockaway peninsula. In order to carry out this work, beginning at 11 p.m. on Fridays and concluding at 4:45 a.m. on Mondays from May 1-4 and May 8- 11, A-subway service that normally terminates at the Far Rockaway-Mott Avenue station will operate to the Howard Beach-JFK station. The Rockaway Park Shuttle train line will not be in service.

Special fare-free substitute shuttle bus service will replace the A and Shuttle service to the Rockaways.

Shuttle Bus No. 1 will operate nonstop between the Howard Beach-JFK and the Far Rockaway Mott Avenue stations.

Shuttle Bus No. 2 will operate between the Howard Beach-JFK and Rockaway Park-Beach 116 Street stations, stopping at Cross Bay Boulevard and Noel Road in Broad Channel and at Rockaway Beach Boulevard's intersections with Beach 98 Street and Beach 105 Street.

A special subway shuttle route will operate between the Far Rockaway-Mott Avenue and Rockaway Park-Beach 116 Street stations, serving all stations on the Rockaway peninsula.

A line service to Lefferts Boulevard will not be affected by this work.
