The following are planned weekday service changes from our friends sworn nemeses at the MTA. The changes go into effect as of 10 a.m. THIS MORNING, so if riding the Manhattan-bound B and Q trains, it is advised that you give yourself additional travel time to allow for the usual bullsh… er, I mean inconveniences.

The changes are as follows:

B Line — Weekday Planned Service Change:

  • 10 AM to 3 PM, Mon to Fri, Dec 5 – 9
  • Manhattan-bound B trains run local from Kings Hwy to Prospect Park
  • Allow additional travel time.

Q Line — Weekday Planned Service Change:

  • 10 AM to 3 PM, Mon to Fri, Dec 5 – 9
  • No Q trains running between Manhattan and Queens – Take the N
  • Q service operates between 57 St-7 Av and Stillwell Av.
  • 10 AM to 3 PM, Mon to Fri, Dec 5 – 9
  • Coney Island-bound Q trains run express from Prospect Park to Kings Hwy

    So happy the B is running again, now we can relax as all trains are delayed! Not to mention the fun games of Human Tetris and Plague-Carrier In A Sardine Can!

      MTA commuters always come out on the losing end. And funny, they are regarded by the MTA much like something that comes out of one’s end, too.

    the Manhattan Q local ran quite fast today, even faster than the normal B express. All those track workers really know how to slow down service.

    Thanks for the tip. Q was so slow this morning, it took 15 minutes to get to Kings Highway. 
    Why aren’t there any signs posted on northbound platform alerting commuters about these delays?
