Service on the G line will be suspended for the next 5 weekends

The G in G train definitely doesn’t stand for Good Service this fall. 

For the next five weekends (every weekend in September and the first one of October), there will be no G train service between Bed-Stuy and Queens in both directions. Weekend passengers who normally rely on the line will have to take busses that will be running along the route between Court Square and Bedford-Nostrand Avenues from 9:45pm on Friday until 5am on Monday. (So, thankfully, a majority of commuters will still be able to use the line to get home from work on Fridays.)

First reported by Brooklyn Paper, the upcoming subway shutdown is being done in order to upgrade select stations along the route and perform overall track maintenance. The G train will still be running between Bedford-Nostrand Avenues and Church Avenues during the weekend.

Brooklyn Community Board 2, which covers the affected area, has released a statement saying that the MTA has informed them about the weekend closures, and that the free busses running in lieu of the train will be making all stops along the subway line’s route.

On thing North Brooklynites can be thankful for is that the G train weekend closures luckily won’t be overlapping with the upcoming L train weekend closures. A merciful gap in that construction schedule will let the G line receive the brunt of straphangers’ ire. For a few weekends, at least. 

For a full list of the affected dates, see below:
