Subway Service Changes During Omicron Surge

Updated January 19, 2022 8:30 a.m.

Like everyone in New York, we've been impacted by the ongoing COVID-19 surge. In order to keep you moving as efficiently as possible, we're taking proactive steps to reallocate train crews. This allows us to maintain service at all 472 stations in our system, albeit at reduced frequencies. 

Service has resumed on the   and   lines, along with express   and   service, and Rockaway Park   trains. 

Service will remain temporarily suspended service on line, which exclusively serves stations with at least one other subway line available. 

Here are the travel alternatives: 

 riders: Take the train in Queens or the train in Manhattan.

There are no express  trains in Brooklyn. Take local trains instead. 

To see the most up-to-date travel information, visit the MTA homepage or check the MYmta app. Our team is also here 24/7 to help you get where you're going. Reach out to us on Twitter or through WhatsApp.
