Fall 2017 Service Adjustments

The following is the list of changes for the Fall 2017 service change, which will start on Sunday, September 3. A total of 25 adjustments are included in the service change, including shifting of trips, adding in trips/increasing frequencies, increasing service spans, and alignment changes. These adjustments are based on internal and external feedback, including comments from operators, the public, and other MTA departments.
