Re: Holiday Train Schedule & Routes

Posted by William A. Padron on Sat Nov 30 18:58:00 2019, in response to Re: Holiday Train Schedule & Routes, posted by Joe V on Sat Nov 30 18:45:53 2019.

No, but guess what is going to happen with the "C" route during the weekend of December 14-15, and this involves with the "A" too. From the Mta web page...

Dec 14 - 15, Saturday & Sunday
(C) Service between Canal St, Manhattan and Euclid Av, Brooklyn is replaced by the (A) and free shuttle buses

(C) trains run in Manhattan between 145 St and Canal St and via the (E) to/from World Trade Center, the last stop.

Shuttle buses run in Brooklyn between Jay St-MetroTech and Utica Av, making all stops.

(A) trains run local between Utica Av and Euclid Av.

Travel Alternatives:
For Chambers St and Fulton St, use the nearby World Trade Center (E) station.

For High St, take a Brooklyn-bound (A) or use the nearby York St (F) station. Transfer between trains at W 4 St.

For stations between Jay St-MetroTech and Euclid Av, take a Shuttle bus and/or the (A) local.
Transfer between trains and shuttle buses at Jay St-MetroTech and/or Utica Av.

This service change affects one or more ADA stations."

Which means that the Holiday Train, planning to end their uptown runs at 145th Street for Sunday, December 15, will either have truncate their runs instead at 125th Street, or when it gets to 145th, discharge all the passengers off the train quickly so as to run lite north of the station to make room of the "C" coming into there (that was done in 2017 with the same situation at 96th Street-2nd Avenue).

Mass confusion is up ahead soon!
