The Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) announced maintenance, cleaning, and repair work will be performed along the G line on weeknights beginning Monday, June 20, and concluding on Friday, July 8.

To accommodate the work, which is part of NYC Transit’s FASTRACK program, there will be no G train service from 9:30 p.m. to 5:00 a.m., except for Monday, July 4 and Tuesday, July 5. 

During the hours FASTRACK is being done, F trains will make G train stops between Bergen St and Church Av in Brooklyn. Free shuttle buses will be provided between Court Sq and Hoyt-Schermerhorn, then run to Jay St-MetroTech to connect customers with F train service. 

FASTRACK work typically includes:  

  • Track – remove debris and repair or replace tie blocks and running rails.   
  • Third Rail Operations – clean and remove debris from under and around the third rail.   
  • Signals – perform general maintenance on signals and switches.   
  • Infrastructure – repair or replace handrails, signs, and tunnel lighting. Clean track drains and repair water damage and leaks.   
  • Electronic Maintenance – optimize performance of closed-circuit television monitors and cameras. Inspect and test public address system equipment.    
  • Station Environment – perform high-intensity station cleaning and painting as well as perform elevator and escalator repair work. Clean vents and drains.
