NYCT FASTRACK begins on Seventh Avenue Line

Metropolitan Transit Authority New York City Transit is bringing FASTRACK back to the Seventh Avenue Line beginning Monday, October 15, when the 1, 2 and 3 Lines will be shut down from 10 p.m. until 5 a.m., suspending service between 34th Street-Penn Station and Atlantic Avenue-Barclays Center and 34th Street-Penn Station and South Ferry, in both directions for four consecutive weeknights.

By providing a more productive work window, transit employees will be safer by avoiding the interruptions of repeatedly having to "clear up" for trains going by.

The next FASTRACK overnight closure will be on the Eighth Avenue A,C and E lines from October 22-26.
