The final weekend of the L train shutdown isn’t the only thing that may affect your commute over the next three days. In fact, like a Schoolhouse Rock song from Hell, you can expect changes on the 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, A, C, D, E, F, J, L, M, Q, R and S lines this weekend. Great. Now we know how to count, read our alphabet and won't be leaving our apartment till Monday.
If you’re curious about the changes affecting each of those 15 lines you can reference the MTA’s Weekender site which runs down the various, and particular, ways each one of these lines will be affecting your social life Saturday and Sunday. A few highlights:
D Coney Island-bound trains run via the N from 36 St to Stillwell Ave
