MTA NYCT St. Patrick’s Day 2018 Info

Here is the MTA NYC Transit’s service plan info for the upcoming St. Patrick’s Day holiday via the press release I received:

The following subway and bus changes will be in effect from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday:

At the 77 St 6 line station, some staircases may be designated as entry/exit only, on both the uptown and downtown platforms due to crowd control.

If you’re traveling to the parade from Astoria, Queens, please note that n service will be suspended in both directions between Astoria-Ditmars Blvd and Times Sq-42 St due to critical track replacement work. As an alternative, free shuttle buses will operate between Astoria-Ditmars Blvd and Queensboro Plaza, and the 7 train will be available at Queensboro Plaza. Details about these changes are available on the Weekender app and website.

As a reminder some subway lines do not run on weekends: there will be no 67 express service.  b trains will not run, and customers are reminded to use the j instead of the z

The following NYC Transit and MTA Bus routes will be detoured in the area along the parade route:  M1, M2, M3, M4, M5, M31, M50, M55, M57, M66, M72, M79, M86, X1, X10, X17, X27, X28, BM1, BM2, BM3, BM4, BM5, BxM2, BxM3, BxM4, BxM6, BxM7, BxM8, BxM9, BxM10, BxM11, Q32 and most Staten Island Express buses.
